PDF files are used for manuals, documents and even some books. Reading PDF files on a computer is nearly standard on any PC today. Microsoft Word can even create PDF files for distribution. While it is not hard, editing a PDF file requires a special program that can do so. Editing PDF files has gotten easier with cheaper programs and even a few free ones that can do a superb job.
