I want to edit PDF file in SharePoint online document library. I have uploaded PDF in document library and also edit fie and save in same location(Document Library).

  • Please, specify the use case you want to know more about. I mean, if you have a PDF file in a document library what's the next action? Do you want to open and edit it in the browser? Do you want to open it in the desktop app and save it automatically after all changes have been done? I think several ways can apply and different solutions can be told.

  • @jaloplo Flow --> Once i upload PDF file in doc library then file will go for approval, in this case if approver can add text for high lighting some text part. it is like PDF annotation. Mar 4, 2019 at 12:51
  • Did you check to use a different format (Microsoft native format) like Microsoft Word for doing this kind of things? If you want to finally have a PDF file you can do it by using 3rd party applications like Nintex Workflow or Nintex Forms. Did you check them?
