How to Change Text Color in PDF

The main reason many people prefer using the Portable Document Format (PDF) when sharing documents is because it is the best way to ensure that the integrity of a document is maintained throughout the sharing process. This simply means no matter what application you are using to view a PDF file, from Adobe Acrobat Reader to Google Chrome, it will look the same. This also means that not anyone has the privilege to edit the content and the text’s formatting and properties. But what to do if you want to change text color in PDF? You can get a great solution here.
