Editing PDF Files

In addition to Office’s ability to save and share documents as Adobe Acrobat PDF (Portable Document Format) files, Word 2013 can open and edit PDF files. When opened, they’re automatically converted to Word format—enabling you to add and delete text, apply formatting, and so on.

To edit a PDF file in Word

  1. From within Word, open the PDF file that you want to edit by pressing Ctrl-O or clicking the File tab, followed by Open.

    The file is converted to Word format and opens in Word for editing.

  2. Edit the document as desired.
  3. To save the edited file, click the File tab, followed by Save; click the Save icon on the Quick Access Toolbar; or press Ctrl-S.

    A Save As dialog box appears red-a.jpg.
