PDF File Editor + DocuX
The DocuClix PDF-Editor lets you Edit, Sign, Create, Manage, or DocuX/Share edited or signed PDF files. You do not need an account to do this nor go through complicated settings. You will have more file storage and share features if you create a free DocuClix Account. Plus store various file formats on the DocuClix File Space.
What is DocuX? A very simple Sign and Share document feature. Submit your signed documents via a secure link to any recipient without having to register or create a DocuClix account. For security your DocuX share link is limited to 24 hours. After 24 hours, everything will be deleted, no file trace or link. Gone it is! Of course, you can download or store your document as well prior or after DocuX.
The PDF-Editor not only works as a standalone Editor, but also as part of Form File links posted on websites, social media, or placed into emails. DocuClix enables a user or visitor to click a Form File link placed or posted anywhere and have it open directly in the PDF-Editor. The completed Form Files can be submitted to the file owner for further form processing or collaboration.
Once your PDF File is loaded into the PDF-Editor, you can Edit, Sign, Insert, or Rotate Pages. When done, you can save the file to your local device or create a free DocuClix account and store your files there. Furthermore, you can share the completed PDF file from the PDF-Editor and store the file to your preferred cloud drive.
Then, you can Save, Download, or Share the File with recipients that do not have a DocuClix account. For more File management features, sign-up for a free account from this page or later from inside the Editor.
As a professional (e.g. medial or legal office, etc.), government, or business organization manages forms as PDF files more securely via DocuClix, DocuClix enables you to collect or fetch Form File data from any link on a website, email, or social media platform.

A Few Nerdy Tips on Different PDF File Types
1. PDF Image/Text File cannot be searched by an editor. The file is also referred to as a non-fillable flat file. If you scan a page and save it as PDF, it's most likely only an image file. You would have to use an Optical Character Reader (OCR) to make it searchable.
2. Electronic PDF File can be searched. If you save a Word file to a PDF file, it's searchable with a PDF editor.
3. Fillable PDF File has predefined form fields that can be edited by the user. The file is also referred to as a Form File. Some fillable PDF files also have text sections (e.g. signature, date, etc.) that are not fillable as other form fields.
