Portable Document Format (PDF) is one of the most common documents used online. When it comes to reading and sharing documents online, everyone has come across PDF files. They are highly reliable since they can store text, images, and various elements in a single coherent file. However, unlike Word documents, PDFs don't have the straightforward options to make changes to your text and improve its readability.

Even with the increase in digitalized workflows, it is imperative to have traditional markup methods such as highlighting critical text in a document. The highlighters allow you to color text just like markers on standard paper translucently, but you use an electronic marker here.

This post provides some of the quick and easy ways you can use this handy tool.
