Track All Edits and Changes how to make changes in pdf file

Have you ever started editing a PDF only to get to a point where you need a version of your document that you had several steps back? Or maybe you’ve been collaborating on a document and want to use a version you had before your colleagues made changes?

Well if you’ve ever been in either of these circumstances, PDFfiller has the perfect tool for you! PDFfiller ‘Versions’ tool keeps track of the changes you make after each document editing session. Here’s how it works.

You may have noticed that anytime you have hit ‘Done’ after editing a document in the PDFfiller editor, a window pops open telling you that a version of your document has been saved along with the date and time.

Next time you open that document in the editor, you can click on the small double arrow on top of the ‘Versions’ bar to the right side of your editing window. When you open the Versions tool, you’ll notice a list of versions labeled with the date and time that you made specific changes to the document.

When you click on one of the dates and times, you will see an orange button appear that says “Restore this Version”. Clicking on the button will reinstate the version of the document you have selected. Keep in mind that even if you reinstate an older version of the document, all the versions will continue to be stored in the list. To return to the current version, you can simply close the Versions tool.
