Can you create an editable PDF?

Our client would like us to create an editable PDF file. When using our system, reports are generated in the PDF format. Sometimes, it may be necessary for the client to have to edit this PDF. Is this possible? If so, which class should I be using?

Hi Jeff,

I would like to share with you that you can use Aspose.Pdf.Kit for .NET to edit existing PDF files. However, if you elaborate your requirement a little bit, we would be in a better position to help you out.
For example:

a) How do you generate the PDF files?
b) Do you want to perform something while generating the PDF files or after they are created?
c) What kind of editing you would like to do?

Please help us understand your requirement, so we could help you out accordingly.


We are using Aspose PDF for .Net to generate the pdf file. We are concatenating multple streams using PdfFileEditor class. Need to generate an editable pdf where user can edit the data for all the fields. But the file is opening in read only mode though the file access mode is set to Read and Write.
Kindly let me know how to generate an editable PDF while saving in physical location.
Thanks in advance.


Hi Debattam,

Thanks for contacting support.

As per my understanding, the source PDF files have Extended Rights enabled so that users can fill the data inside PDF forms using Adobe Reader but as per your observations, when you are concatenating PDF forms, the extended rights are being lost. I would recommend you to please follow the instructions specified over following link for information on Preserve Extended Rights feature while working with Forms

In case you still face the same issue, please share the source PDF files so that we can test the scenario at our end. We are sorry for this inconvenience.
