Tailor the PDF editor to your needs


  • Logo location: whether the logo should be displayed at the top or bottom of the sidebar when in full screen
  • Submission modal: when documents are submitted through your portal, a confirmation modal will popup to tell your users that they can now close the window. You can choose to hide this modal if you have implemented your own by listening to Iframe events


  • Text: show / hide the text tool
  • Checkbox: show / hide the checkbox tool
  • Signature: show / hide the signature tool
  • Picture: show / hide the picture tool
  • Boxed text: show / hide the boxed text tool

Document manipulation

  • Allow moving, rotating, deleting pages: when enabled, buttons next to each pages are displayed allowing to move the pages around, rotate and delete them.
  • Allow adding new pages: when enabled, tyour users can add additional PDF documents using the + in the document preview sidebar.
  • Allow downloading a copy: when enabled, your users can choose to download a copy of the document that they are submitting.
  • Flatten forms: when enabled, fields present on the form will be be editable after submitting. This is especially useful if you want to prevent future edition of the fields once the document is submitted.

That's it! You now have the perfect editor, nicely blending in your own website or app!
