How do I edit PDF files on the computer?

The quickest version is to check the “last updated” date in the Properties of the file, like I am doing here in Soda PDF. If the document has been modified after the last time you saved it, it’s likely been edited. You can use a “compare documents” tool that will outline any changes between 2 versions of a document. If the file is saved in something like SharePoint, the version control log should be viewable. You can also lock the file with a local digital signature. This is like a wax seal. If it’s been changed you’ll know. You can easily remove it in Soda PDF.

Edit PDF: All You Need to Know

After the last written date it doesn’t really matter anymore. So here we go… Using Documents.exe and Windows Explorer With the files you’ve created in the previous step, you can open it like you would for any other Office suite document. Note: If you’re opening the file with the open office suite you are more than likely going to have to enable the “Show hidden files and folders”. (Windows 7) In PowerPoint, I usually use the file ‣ button in the ribbon, then navigate to “Open with …”. I also use the advanced ‣ button under that, to give me options. When it gives me the option to check the last written date or not, I use the last written date, otherwise I use date date to look up the document. Once I do that for both, I exit the open dialog box. You could probably do the same with other office.
