You can also quickly create PDF forms from any document or from scratch using our Fields Manager which lets you add a variety of form fields to any PDF and turn it into a fillable form.
With its long list of useful document management tools, DocHub is an essential app for anyone who handles PDFs for business or personal use, and best of all, most of its PDF editing and electronic signature tools are free to use.
Once you are finished editing or signing your PDF, DocHub offers several different options for sharing, downloading, and exporting your documents and is integrated with Google Drive, Dropbox, and Microsoft OneDrive.
If you need to use DocHub more often, on a regular basis, for business, academic, or any type of organizational or professional use, you have the option to upgrade to DocHub Pro which is a paid subscription that raises the limits of a free account for sending and signing documents. The cost of DocHub Pro is much cheaper than most of our competitors without having to compromise performance, quality, or functionality. You can learn more about DocHub Pro on our pricing page.
The Tool Bar at the top of an open document in DocHub has a button for most of the PDF editing or annotation tools which are listed below unless noted as being in the Page Controls or Manage Fields panels which can be toggled open or closed by clicking either icons on the left side of the Tool Bar, or if it's a Template, just click on the Edit Template button in the upper right corner to display the Tool Bar and open the Fields Manager. You'll also find some of these annotation tools in the File menu in the upper right corner, and for many of these tools, you'll see some fine tuning controls to the right of the main Tool Bar when selected.
After you upload a document to DocHub from your computer, Google Drive, Gmail, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, or a 3rd party URL, you can begin annotating your PDF by selecting the tool you want to use on the Tool Bar and click anywhere on your document to add that type of annotation. You can add as many annotations as you'd like to your PDF and can always edit, move, or delete any of them after they've been added. Each annotation will have its own window, as a frame, around it.
