How to Make PDF Writable on Mac/ Windows PC

If so, buddy, cheer up again, because you can change the situation. You can make the PDF editable, either on your Mac or Windows PC. Let's see how to make a PDF writable without a hitch.
To switch a PDF from readable to writable, we have to figure out why the PDF is only readable, not writable first, and then adopt the problem-oriented strategy. As a matter of fact, 90% percent of online PDF files are readable. To protect the owners' rights, PDF owners like to add password to the PDFs, preventing other people copying, editing, and printing the PDF file. In conclusion, the PDF password does not allow us to write on the PDF. So to make a PDF writable, we have to remove the PDF password first.
To remove the PDF password, a PDF tool is needed. When you enter the query "remove PDF password" in the Google Search box, you will get thousands of results. Most of them are useless. Some of them are useful. However, you have to spend a lot of time checking whether they are workable or not.
