Edit PDFs Graphically
This SuperTool allows you to edit PDFs like they are images or like in photoshop. Filter, add text, add shapes, crop and much more!
It is often said that you can't edit PDFs, but this is wrong. You can edit! This tool adds layers of graphics on top of the existing PDF pages in the same way a graphic editing tool like PhotoShop would do with a PNG or JPEG. In this way, you PDF contains images of text and lines and so on, where before it might have contained metadata that gave a PDF viewing tool the ability to render the various elements that were written in code.

How to White Out a PDF
Use this SuperTool to draw a white rectangle with white fill around text to white out words, sentences, or paragraphs. Draw as many rectangles as you desire!
Why White Out a PDF?
There are several reasons why you might want to white out or remove content from a PDF:
- To redact sensitive information: One common reason to white out a PDF is to redact sensitive information. For example, you might want to remove personal details, financial information, or confidential business information from a document before sharing it with others. Whiteing out this information can help protect your privacy and ensure that the document is only shared with the intended audience. This SuperTool flattens all of the whited-out material and the shapes you drew on top of them making it very difficult for users to see the underlying material. However, always check to see if it worked by opening the output PDF in your editor and seeing if you can select or view the portions you have tried to white out.
- To correct mistakes: Another reason to white out a PDF is to correct mistakes or typos. If you have made a mistake in a document, you can white out the incorrect information and write in the correct information. This can be especially useful if you do not have access to the original source file and cannot simply make the correction directly. After whiting out, you can create new text with this SuperTool.
- To update or obsolete information: You may also want to white out information in a PDF if the information is no longer accurate or relevant. For example, you might have a document that contains outdated contact information or product details that need to be updated. By whiteing out the obsolete information, you can update the document without having to create a new version from scratch.
- To simplify a document: Finally, you may simply want to white out certain sections of a PDF to simplify the document or make it easier to read. For example, you might want to remove unnecessary or redundant information, or highlight only the most important points. Whiteing out this information can help make the document more focused and easier to understand.
