Is there a built-in PDF editor for Chromebooks?

Chromebooks do not normally come with a built-in PDF viewer, which is where Acrobat can assist with its free extension. While there is a wide array of free PDF editing extensions and applications, none compare to the simple, clean, user-friendly experience Acrobat provides.

Viewing a PDF or adding images and text is simple — with the Adobe Acrobat free online editing tool, you can easily add sticky notes, highlights, drawings, and more. Communication and collaboration has never been easier.
