Do You Have Questions?

Here's a list of frequently asked questions to help you understand how the PDF Editor works.

1. What is the maximum size for PDF imports?

We currently support any PDF files up to 30 MB and 50 pages.

2. Why do I need to choose a unit of measurement during the import process?

As PDF files don’t have a standard unit of measurement, you must decide if your import file will be in pixels, centimeters or inches. If you are not sure which one to choose, you can inspect your PDF file, or simply use pixels for web and social media, inches for print in North America, and centimeters for print in the rest of the world.

3. Do I need to upload the font files that were used on my PDF files?

No, but you will be asked to match or replace fonts before accessing the editor. If you have the original font files, you can upload them during the import process.

Alternatively, you can choose a replacement from our royalty-free Google font collection. This may cause some variances in the appearance of textual elements, but it will allow you to edit the text freely.

We currently support TTF (TrueType) font format. The OTF (OpenType) will be added soon.  Adobe Typekit files are not supported.

4. Why do I need to upload or replace fonts?

When a PDF file is generated, fonts are stripped of the letters and symbols that were not used. When you replace or upload fonts, you can edit the text without limitation.

5. How do I know what fonts are being used in a PDF file?

Using a PDF Reader, inspect the document properties to see what fonts are used. If you’re using Adobe Acrobat to read PDF files, choose File > Properties and click on the Fonts tab to see a list of the fonts used in the document.

6. Why do certain elements look slightly different from my original PDF file?

Imported files may look slightly different from the original file because of two reasons: 

  1. Font Replacement: You chose a replacement font that is different in size and shape to the one used in your PDF. To avoid this issue, upload the original font during the PDF import process. 
  2. PDF Mapping: PDF files generally have a lot of layers and formatting and every software program reads each item differently. The conversion of PDF files back into editable designs is an involved and complex process, which is sometimes not perfect due to the vast number of ways to produce PDFs. We are working hard to minimize these differences and encourage you to let us know of any quirks you find.

7. Why do the colors of a some images look different than my original PDF file?

We only support images that were exported in RGB. If you imported a PDF with a CMYK image, the colors may appear a bit different from the original (CMYK is for printing and RGB is for the screen). You can always replace any image you like within the editor.

8. What are the supported and non-supported design features?

We will support all the standard design elements to make your PDF easy to edit. If we come across any unsupported elements, we will convert them into an image to allow you to continue editing the rest of your PDF freely.

What We Support

We currently support the RGB color space and JPEG, PNG, or SVG elements.
We also support the following design effects:

  • Clipping Masks;
  • Color Fills;
  • Opacity;
  • Paths;
  • Shapes (Ellipse, Rectangle, Rounded, Line Segment, Polygon, etc.);
  • Strokes; and
  • Texts.

What we convert to images

Non-supported design features automatically get converted to non-editable images and text elements with special formatting will be converted to outlined text.
Elements we convert includes:

  • Animations;
  • Blending Modes;
  • Form Fields;
  • Glyphs;
  • Gradients;
  • Hyperlinks;
  • Image Masks;
  • Kerning;
  • Lines with endpoints;
  • OpenType Ligatures;
  • Special Effects (Appearance Attributes, Graphic Styles, and others);
  • Strikethrough Options;
  • Text On Paths;
  • Text Variables;
  • TypeKit Fonts; and
  • Videos.

9. What if I cannot edit anything?

Certain PDF files are created by scanning documents which means that the text inside of them is a flat image and is no longer editable. While scanning is the most common occurrence of this behavior, the person creating the PDF can also choose to rasterize or flatten the content into one image which would also mean you are unable to edit text or elements. This is a rare case, but as there are hundreds of ways to create a PDF, many different variations can be easily encountered.

10. How can I check what format is being used in a PDF file?

Using a PDF Reader, inspect the document properties to see the file dimensions. If you’re using Adobe Acrobat to read PDF files, choose File > Properties and click on the Description tab to view the format of the document. You can see the format of the page under Page Size.
