PDF Editor

DronaHQ provides a very powerful and feature-rich WYSIWYG PDF Editor where you can create/design a PDF template from either scratch or use a ready template and modify it according to your needs.

PDF Editor supports several components to add content like text, images, or table data to the page and also to organize the layout of those content. You can work with dynamic data inside the template by creating variables and binding them to the components.

The look and feel of specific pages can be changed by adding headers, footers, background colors, or images to it. Additionally, you can modify the page size, orientation, and margins to meet your design expectations. Miscellaneous settings like Zoom In, Zoom Out, and Page Reset make the design experience a breeze.

It is possible to create multiple versions of the same template. A new version of the template is created every time you publish and you can switch to any version using the rollback feature.
