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.
