How to Edit PDF File without Any Third Party Software on OS X

PDF stands for Portable Document Format, which is really very good from the point of view of security. You can add passwords and it is much difficult to crack that password with or without any software if you are using a strong password.

On the other end, Mac OS X is one of the best operating system that provides different software by default. You can do so many things with iWork, which is the latest update of OS X Mavericks. I have used it and all its components and the experience was excellent.

This is however very easy and not yet much time-consuming to edit PDF file on OS X.
