How to type directly onto a PDF?

October 2016


I would like to be able to type directly into a PDF file (Add some more contents).
  • I've opened the file with Adobe ReaderX ... but when I sent it to OpenOffice, the text is unreadable.


If the PDF file is a standard and isn't locked, it is always possible to make annotations with Acrobat Reader and then print the file + annotations.
  • But the creator of the file must have allowed that. If this is not the case, you must activate it with Acrobat "Pro".

Thanks to contrariness for this tip.
