Edit PDF’s in Office 365

Finally!   You can edit PDF’s in Word in Office 365, however the document has to have been created in a Microsoft Office document.   More than likely when you open it, it won’t look 100% like it did in Adobe, so don’t be surprised by this.

It’s super simple to do as well.   Here’s how you do it.  Find your PDF and right click on it, an option to open in Word should show up on the pop up menu, like below:


That will open up the PDF in Word and will give you this dialog box:


Select OK, and the PDF will open in Word.   Here’s what it looks like (I used a very simple document, if there were a lot of graphics in this it probably wouldn’t look this pretty!)


Now I can type whatever I want into the document, like so:


You can even save this or any Word document as a PDF too!  Go to the File menu and select Save As, it will bring up this dialog box:


Under Save as Type, select the drop down menu and select PDF.


Underneath you can see where you can pick a level of optimization.  Then click the save button and you are all set!
