How to Write on a PDF Document

However, if you notice a typo and need to edit the text or write on PDF to add something new (like a title, for instance), then it might become complicated. Icecream PDF Editor is a powerful software used to edit PDFs that will help you complete such a task with ease in just a few steps. Read on to find out how to type on a PDF document.
