PDF Editor Software
PDF files are not intermediate files, instead these are representation of a document and therefore, you cannot edit the file. The PDF files are generally designed to view the document and the source of PDF files is edited to make changes to a PDF file. If the source is Word document - changes can be made in the PDF format and if it is an Excel file - changes should be made in the Excel file.
PDF editors are tools which can be used to make changes to the original file and changes can also be made to the complete PDF file by changing its security settings, page order and outlook. There are many types of PDF editors available online which can be used to make changes to text, images, page orders and security settings of a PDF file.
