Add Text Content

The Add Text Content tool allows you to add / create new text content in a PDF document. This can be useful when for example you need to add new line items to a list or new rows in a table. 


Starting the Add Text Content tool

  1. Start the Add Text tool by clicking the on the Document Tab of the toolbar
  2. Click on the page where you would like to add some text
  3. Type the text you wish to add
  4. To finish press Esc or click elsewhere on the document


Once you have completed adding all the text content you need to the page, use the Edit PDF Content tools to modify it further if needed.

To access the Text Content properties go to the Properties Tab on the toolbar or right click (Mac: Ctrl + Click) on the toolbar button and click Default Tool Properties. The following default settings can be applied to Text Content.
