PDF which stands for (Portable document format) is one of the most commonly used file types today. If you happen to download a form or document from the web, there’s a good chance it’s a PDF file.
PDF files are primarily meant for viewing and for editing. Anybody with a PDF file reader can open and view the file. Even if the recipient computer doesn’t have MS word installed. If you have a word document with multiple pages and want to share with someone, there is no better way than to send it as a single PDF file.
