Hear What PDFLiner Users Have to Say About Drawing Feature

  • Summer Doyle
    Student
    I think it’s a rare feature in a PDF editor, and to me, it’s priceless. As a student, I often need to draw a chart or diagram when working on my workbook, right on a page. PDFLiner makes it a breeze. It’s good for creating your own little art as well.
  • Ian Brown
    Preschool Teacher
    I’ve been using this tool a lot since we’ve been teaching remotely. Working in preschool means you need a lot of visual materials to keep the kids engaged, and PDFLiner is by far the easiest way to make some. It has a lot of useful features to help you with your artistic experiments.
  • Leah Blankley
    Marketing Manager
    PDFLiner has long been my favorite for the many formal documents that I have to complete as part of my job. With the Draw on a PDF feature, however, I have also found it useful for creating not-so-official illustrated policies and mind maps that I can easily share with my coworkers.
