  5. The output file will be stored in the “Converted” folder under the Documents tab.




Step 2- Insert Text & Signature

  1. Open the output PDF file.
  2. Fill in the required information with text boxes or your signature.
  3. You can adjust the font, style, or color while inserting text.





Step 3- Flatten the PDF and Share
