PDF files are widely used in study and work and its formats are easy for reading. But for all its dazzle, it is kind of difficult to edit the original content on it for example people often find it hard to add text into a PDF file. Some Mac users may say that the Preview, which is a built-in application of Mac, is able to do this. But I have just found that the functions of Preview are of too many limitations.
