Instructions and Help about Highlight PDF

Did you ever find yourself wanting to highlight a PDF, but couldn’t? Maybe you had a question on a form, or a key point to remember. You might pine for paper copies, but at pdfFiller, we prefer to use our simple online tool to directly highlight on PDF instead. Let us tell you why. In the world without PDF highlight, you probably had to print the form in question, highlight the text with an light highlighter which would often soak through the paper and mark the text on the other side. Once you got your answer, and because you could not submit the form with highlighted text, you had to print it again to make a clean version. Besides needing a printer and a scanner; this whole process is just too time-consuming. Now look at how to highlight in PDF documents directly. You can simply use pdfFiller! To start, upload a form to your account or open a document that’s already there. When you open the form you’ll see a toolbar along the top with the Highlight button.

Click the button to activate the highlighter. Select the content that you want to highlight by clicking and dragging the cursor. Release the cursor when you have finished highlighting text. That’s it! Unlike permanent highlighters, you can use the slider to resize the highlighter, too.

Easy, reliable and very effective Makes completing forms easy and professional. Easy to navigate, easy to find and upload forms and easy to send/save. the only negative thing I could say is that I would like to have the font a different size and I have been unable to fit it correctly in some spaces.
