What is PDF?

PDF stands for Portable Document Format (PDF). It was created in 1991 by a research and development team called Camelot, led by Dr. John Warnock, one of the co-founders of Adobe. The PDF file type enable anyone to capture documents from any application, send electronic versions of these documents anywhere, and view and print them on any machine.

The PDF is an open standard (ISO PDF/A ISO 19005-1). PDF documents can contain links and buttons, form fields, audio, video, and even business logic. They can be signed electronically, and you can easily view PDF files on Linux, Windows, IOS OS and Mac OS using the Acrobat Reader DC software.

Why should you use this PDF search engine?

When using default search engines like Baidu, Google, Yandex, Yahoo, and Bing by default they will not only show you PDF files related to the search term but also webpages, images, and other media. Only when using so called "search operators" you will be able to filter on the document type you are looking for. PDFsearch automatically adds the needed operators automatically to ensure you only results referring to PDF files.

Which software do I need to open and read PDF files?

To open a pdf file in for example Microsoft Windows 10, you will need a copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC or an alternative PDF reader. Acrobat Reader is free and available on the Adobe website. It is available in multiple languages. For a complete list of PDF software read our article mentioned above or visit Capterra PDF software listing page.

How does PDF search work?

Our application automatically adds specific search engine operator syntax and then submits the search request to Google. By doing so, the Google search results shown our website, only contain PDF files. In this way we ensure you only see result that are actual documents that are accessible for you. How often don't think you found the document when using a default search engine but then need to submit your email address or other personal information before being able to download the file.

Is it safe to download a PDF?

99% of the PDF files will be safe but sadly enough this is not always the case. For example Adobe Reader DC comes with support for javscript embedded in PDF file. Hackers can simply add malicious code to the PDF file to exploit this vulnerability. When you open the PDF file, the malicious code will get executed and might install malware on your computer, all without you knowing it. Luckily enough there are many antivirus and antimalware solutions that will protect you. So always make sure that you have protection software running on your pc, laptop, and mobile device.

How to edit a PDF file?

Instead of converting the PDF document you might be better off by directly downloading a Microsoft Word document. There are several websites that actually offer the possibility to download the document your are searching for in DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, PPTX and other editable standards. For example BizzLibrary.com and AllBusinessTemplates.com

Still, if the PDF file is not protected, you will be able to edit(and convert) the document using Adobe Acrobat Pro or an alternative editor.
