General information about PDF format

PDF (Portable Document Format) is a universally accepted electronic document format developed by Adobe Systems. It is an open standard for creating, viewing, and sharing documents that can be viewed on any device, regardless of the operating system or platform. PDF files are generally smaller in size compared to other document formats, making them easier to store and share. Those can easily be edited, printed, and secured, making it a popular choice for business documents, contracts, reports, and more. PDFs also support many interactive features such as form fields, buttons, and audio/video, making them perfect for creating digital forms. In addition, they can contain embedded fonts, images, and other multimedia elements, allowing users to create highly professional documents. Also, they are password-protected and can be digitally signed, ensuring the security of the file’s contents. PDFs are considered one of the most versatile document formats and are the preferred format for many businesses and organizations.
