It’s no secret that converting documents to PDF is one of the most frequently used workflows. After all, PDF is the go-to for standardizing and archiving digital documents and other file types. It enables people to view your document or image but not edit it or make any changes. And PDF files are easy to share using cloud services such as Dropbox, Box or Google Drive, or via email.
