How do I draw on a PDF document?


This Article concerns features available in the following applications: PDF Pro; PDF Creator; PDF Reader; PDF Writer; PDF Editor


There are several tools within PDF Pro which you can use to draw directly on your PDF documents.


Under the “Review” tab, you’ll find a pencil tool, which allows you to draw free form on your document.


Under the “Edit” tab, you’ll find tools that allow you to draw ellipses, Rectangles, Straight lines, and even clouds.


With all of these tools, you are able to select the color as well as the thickness of the line. Additionally, if you hold down SHIFT while drawing, it will ensure equal proportions and angles. For example, if you press SHIFT while using the rectangle tool, it will draw a square. With the ellipse tool, you will be drawing a circle. With the straight line, you will be drawing either a horizontal or a vertical line.
