How to Modify PDF Files on Mac OS X?

PDF files are widely used on Mac OS X as they can be created, viewed and shared easily. But by nature, they are hard to be modified. With the built-in Preview, users can make some kind of modifications on the PDF files such as adding annotations, merging PDF pages. But it is far from enough, as it doesn’t allow users modify PDF text and images. Then, Wondershare PDF Editor for Mac is needed. It is an innovative PDF editing tool and it provides 2 methods for users to modify PDF files on Mac OS X: Modify PDF files directly and Modify PDF files in Ms Word.

Method 2 Modify PDF files in Ms Word
Open a PDF file with Wondershare PDF Editor for Mac. Then choose File > Convert to Word in the top menu bar, you can quickly convert the current PDF file to editable Ms Word document. Then you can modify it in Ms Word.

Both the 2 methods allow you to modify PDF files on Mac OS X. In my opinion, the first method is quicker if you only need to modify a few typos on the PDF file. But if you have to make large changes to the PDF file, converting PDF to Word to modify it in Word is more time-saving. Users can choose the suitable method according to the different situation.
