The PDF File format introduced by Adobe has been the favorite for all when it comes to creation of invoices, presentations, ebooks etc. This is obvious from the portability and robustness that the pdf documents have when compared with file types like doc.  Unlike the other popular doc file format, PDF files cannot be easily modified or edited.

Earlier, the only option to make changes to a pdf file was to purchase the Adobe Reader.

PDF Files are usually made non writable ie. only readable. But now, editing pdf files has been much easier with the new free alternatives for Adobe Acrobat Reader and other free online tools that would help you modify pdf files with ease.
