Great – you just received a PDF where you need to review and add markup. Reviewing PDFs pose many challenges due to the rigid nature of these document types. The challenges are well known as a recent study reported that 50% of respondents find PDFs difficult to review and annotate. Often the issue lies in acquiring client software which costs time and money to set up. This leads to manually reviewing PDFs which poses error.
Fortunately, there is a way you can easily add markup directly to a PDF without installing any client software. Not only is adding markup simple, you can also quickly identify the differences between document versions by displaying the changes directly in the files, even PDFs. Read on to learn more.
