If a PDF file is not letting me write on the file using the Reader, can I do something to change that?

The quickest version is to check the “last updated” date in the Properties of the file, like I am doing here in Soda PDF. If the document has been modified after the last time you saved it, it’s likely been edited. You can use a “compare documents” tool that will outline any changes between 2 versions of a document. If the file is saved in something like SharePoint, the version control log should be viewable. You can also lock the file with a local digital signature. This is like a wax seal. If it’s been changed you’ll know. You can easily remove it in Soda PDF.

Write on PDF: All You Need to Know

In this case, I have removed this file from my personal library, and I don’t want it in my work product. I know why. This is one of the many reasons why I prefer to keep all documents and work product in one library.  This is very convenient in the long run. But back to the point of this post, if you are reading this before, you likely have not read the section on file types in the ‛file options page. In the section below, you will learn about the file types that are recommended in this article. In the future, I will be adding to this list. This is by far the largest file type. You should be ready to read this entire article! (Sorry… my fingers are still cold from typing). When you open a file from another platform, you should be fine with the file type you.
