Nitro Pro includes tools so you can add new text to a PDF document, or make last-minute corrections and updates, without the need to re-open the source files in the authoring program.
The Type Text tool lets you add text anywhere on a PDF document, even if it does not have interactive fields. It gives you full control over the text color, font type, and text size. For example, if you obtain a PDF form created from a photocopy or scan of a paper form, you do not need to print the form and then write information on the paper. Instead, you can use the Type Text tool to enter text as an annotation on the form.
You can use the Edit tool to update and move existing blocks of text as a paragraph inside a bounding-box, and do not have to manage paragraphs as a collection of separate lines. As you edit text or resize the bounding-box while editing, text re-flows naturally onto adjacent lines.
TIP: Text re-flow is supported in paragraphs, and treats them as separate objects. To move a paragraph, use the Edit tool.
Nitro Pro includes tools so you can add text to each page in your document in the form of headers and footers, and Bates numbers for unique page numbering.

NOTE: If you plan to make many small or several major text corrections to a document, we recommend you go back to the source file and make the changes there. This gives more precise control over the exact layout and look, and there may be an opportunity to automate the corrections to save time. Alternatively, Convert PDF to Microsoft Word or Convert PDF to Rich Text to create an editable DOC or RTF file.
TIP: When you type text, it is inserted on the annotation layer by default. To insert text on the content layer, Ctrl-click the page where you want to insert text. For more information, see Annotation layer and content layer.
When enabled, Smart Alignment provides visual markers that make it easy to align new text to other phrases, annotations, or images on the page before you begin typing. With the Type Text tool selected, the cursor will snap to the horizontal or vertical guides depending on where you position your mouse.
To enable/ disable Smart Alignment:
NOTE: If you enter a character with a font that not installed, Nitro Pro automatically tries to select a font with a similar appearance. You may notice the font name change while you edit text.
If Nitro Pro cannot determine a related font, it uses a generic font. We advise you to confirm that selected fonts are similar in appearance, and apply another font if necessary.
For more information, see Embedded fonts.
To move text, click the Edit tool on a paragraph or heading to select it, and do one of the following:
Moving text from the annotation layer to the content layer is known as flattening text.
