 PDF documents have long been a popular file format on the web for their ability to provide simple formatting, accessibility, and universality. They are active so that they can be read in any browser (even text-based browsers like Lynx). Dutch PDF files are also easy to view due to their consistency with layout and compatibility with most software.

But there are also other advantages:

1) You can distribute them easily as eBooks or online documents. 

 2) If a document needs updating, you only need to update the PDF file rather than your website or blog.

 3) Readable at any viewing size - even mobile devices - because the content flows around it in order of relevance rather than forced by page widths or column sizes. 

4) The digital scrapbooking tool can be used on these formats, so users can add text, shapes, and digital photos to their creations. Also there is no risk that a reader will lose the digital scrapbooking due to a computer crash, because the scrapbooking objects are stored in the PDF format. These objects can be imported into other applications. 

 5) PDFs are the only cross-platform file format that works across all devices (Macs, Windows PCs, Linux PCs etc.) and because they are not proprietary file formats from any vendor, there is less chance of viruses corrupting or deleting them. PDF’s are also the only file format that can be opened with minimal software.

What if I need to update the PDF?

 PDFs are simply files, so as long as you have a copy of the original document you can always create a new version. When you create a PDF file, the information in it is written onto special invisible layers called “geometric layouts” which are designed to be removed at no expense to the users. They can be located and deleted by using special software that reads this PDF converter. This is what allows accessibility to people who cannot view or print documents, like people with disabilities or visually impaired readers. It also allows for easy updating of an existing document. Changes can be made to the PDF file, but because these changes are in the layout it will not affect how any reader sees the document. With a few clicks, the original layout can be put back into the document and all modified information deleted so that no one (except for those with special software) will see any difference.

How do I create PDF files?

 This is done using Adobe’s Acrobat software or similar programs like Foxit Reader, pdfMachine, or Ghostscript. These programs normally work by creating a virtual copy of your original file and saving it as a PDF file. Then they delete all of the information on these invisible layers leaving only text and images behind. From there, you can email it or share it with others on the web.

How do I add text to a PDF file?

 This is done using software that allows you to edit existing PDF files. This software is normally either commercial or free. Content can be added to your documents using fill-in forms, entering text manually, or importing existing text from other sources. 

How do I add digital scrapbooking items to a PDF file?

 This is done using the same editing software that you used to create your PDF. A few programs like Adobe Acrobat will allow access to editable text elements, but for most users you will need special editing software. Some cheaper PDF editors won’t allow access to the vector shapes in PDF format. Digital scrapbooking items are stored as vector shapes inside of a pdf document and can also be edited, modified, or even converted back into layers if needed.
