Modern web users want to be able to read documents online, but that doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice usability. For example, you may have a PDF file containing all the information about an event or sale that you want your customers to see. However, if they can’t find what they’re looking for or have trouble reading the content because it’s poorly formatted, they might just give up and go elsewhere. So, here are some ways to make sure your PDFs look good on the web.
Rotate your PDF
The easiest and most straightforward way to make a PDF more readable on the Internet is to rotate it. This will help keep your readers’ eyes from straining, especially if they’re reading longer documents or articles.
There are two ways you can rotate a PDF document: manually or automatically. For this, you can use tools like PDFSimpli to figure out how to rotate PDF and save.
Use a PDF editor to add links and bookmarks.
If you’re using an online PDF editor, make sure to add links and bookmarks. Bookmarks are links to specific pages in your document. They can be added by clicking on the “Bookmarks” tab, then choosing “Add Bookmark.” You can then type in the name of the bookmark and click “OK.”
A handy way to use bookmarks is for navigation purposes. If you want users who are reading your PDF on their phones or tablets to easily jump between sections of a document (for example, if it’s a long report), creating bookmarks is an easy way to do that.
You can also create hyperlinks for certain text inside your document and then save as PDF. This is useful if there are certain words or phrases that you want readers clicking on instead of just reading through them passively. This will help direct them towards other parts of your document so they don’t have as hard a time navigating through it all at once.
Use a PDF editor to reorder your pages.
You can do a few things if you want to make a PDF document more readable on the Internet. One of them is to use an online editor. They’re free and easy to use!
First, choose your preferred application from the list below:
- PDFSimpli (Windows & Mac)
- Adobe Reader (Windows & Mac)
- GoodReader (Mac)
- Foxit Reader (Windows & Mac)
Once you’ve selected an editor, open up the PDF file and rearrange the pages as you see fit.
