Instructions and Help about How to White Out Text in PDF

The truth is that sometimes we make errors when filling forms. It can be very disappointing because you may not be permitted to use white-out to correct your mistakes, or you may not want to leave them with unsightly corrections.

In the past, you probably had to print the form again and fill it again. Then, you would either scan the form or send a hard copy to wherever it needed to go. Besides needing a printer and a scanner, the process probably took you far too much time to complete.

Now there is a far easier way to white-out text in PDF documents. You can simply use pdfFiller!

To get started, upload a document to your account and open it in the editor. Clicking the Erase button in the main toolbar will cause the eraser toolbar to appear under the editing tools.

Use the slider to change the thickness of the eraser. Navigate to the content you want to erase, press and hold down the mouse button, drag the eraser across the content, then release the button and click OK.

If the page color or background is not white, use the color picker to change the eraser’s color. Click the color picker icon, then click once anywhere on the page or background.

Navigate to the content you want to erase, click and drag the eraser across it and then click OK.

You can also white-out content of any dimensions. Click the rectangle icon, place the cursor at any angle of the rectangle you need to white-out, press down the mouse button, drag to the opposite angle of the rectangle and release the button.

In some ways, it makes sense that we think about the world in terms of categories — we imagine things, but we also need to make sense of the world by categorizing. Categories don't just exist out there on the pages of a print dictionary, though — we have specific models for categorizing that work (e.g., our models for categorizing nouns). The answer is that it is incredibly hard to write down and communicate a lot of information at once, and in order to have a meaningful understanding of what you are reading or seeing, you need to break this information down into categories. A single visual category can, say, be used for both a single story and a single illustration — just take a look at our previous examples. The idea behind having rules for categorizing visual content is that by having a rule for categorization we can break this information down into smaller chunks, and as these chunks are used by someone else to make sense of what they are seeing, we can use the rule to help understand what they are seeing and, importantly, what it conveys.. With a simple and intuitive touch interface and rich customization options, you can build document solutions to meet the needs of every single organizational need..
