More and more businesses are taking steps toward becoming "paperless" in our society today. And as digital communications become more accessible and user-friendly, there is less need for the seemingly endless stream of copies and print-outs that often wind up stacked in our recycling bins. REALTORS® will never be able to work in truly paperless offices, but many are following the trend to conduct more business electronically in order to reduce cost, hassle and waste.

PDF files are an intricate part of online business communication and transactions. How many PDF files do you send back and forth in a typical day? Forms, contracts, deed restrictions, HOA bylaws, offers to purchase, amendments, financing letters — the list is endless. And without proper PDF editing software, creating, editing and publishing these documents can be a challenge. How many times have you received a PDF that required a signature, only to print out the document, sign it, scan it, and resend it? Not exactly paperless or hassle-free. PDF Escape could be the answer!

PDF Escape is a free online PDF editor, form filler and form creator that seeks to change the way you work with PDFs. It's easy-to use-tools allow you to make simple or complicated edits to any (unprotected) PDF with a couple of clicks. Gone are the days of printing forms — simply fill them out online with PDF Escape's text tool. Add images, including signatures, anywhere in the document. Use the white-out feature to eliminate anything you don't want to include. You can also create Web links; crop, delete, insert or move pages; add check boxes; and encrypt contents with a password. When you are finished, simply save and/or download your finished PDF and send it off — no paper or scanning required!

If you want to create a form, the PDF form designer will help you to create, style or modify form fields free of charge. However, publishing your form for others to use will require the purchase of one of the "Ultimate" user plans.
