Sometimes, when completing a PDF form we don’t know the exact answer to a particular question or need feedback from the document recipient. In situations like this, you can add comments to PDF documents online using very simple tools. PDFfiller's simple but powerful document editor allows you to add comments anywhere in the document. In the past, you probably had to print the form and write your comments on the margins of the paper copy. Depending on your handwriting, the form might not have been very tidy and pleasant to look at. Now there is a far easier way to add comments to a PDF online and remove them when they are no longer needed. You can simply use PDFfiller’s editor to add comments to your PDF documents!
