PDF, better known as Portable Document Format, is a versatile file format for easy and reliable document presentation and exchange. Created by Adobe, it allows viewing documents regardless of software, hardware, or operating system.

Links, buttons, form fields, music, video, and business logic can all be found in PDF documents. They are easily seen on Windows or macOS and can be electronically signed. To ensure that the information you want to express is delivered exactly as intended, PDFs are a dependable format for exporting documents that you wish to share with others or make publicly available.
