Draw on PDFs on an Android device.

Sometimes you need to make edits to a PDF on the go. So it’s good to know you can easily draw freehand on your Android device to add visual elements to your editing process.

When you review PDFs, the drawing features in Adobe Acrobat online services can be useful for many reasons. For example, you can draw an arrow directly on a PDF to indicate where a text passage needs to be moved. You can also circle pictures or text to highlight specific queries, or draw lines to indicate changes to the text flow of the document.

Draw directly on your PDF in just a few steps.

To draw on PDFs on your Android device, use any web browser to navigate to the online PDF editor on Acrobat online services. Then simply follow these straightforward steps:

To view the page as a desktop site, tap the three vertical dots in the upper right-hand corner and select that option from the drop-down menu.

Tap Select A File, which will take you to your recent files. You can grab files from anywhere your phone can connect to — internal storage, Google Drive, or your cloud service.

To start drawing on your file, sign in to your Adobe, Google, or Apple account.

Select the Pencil icon in the toolbar to draw. Choose from a variety of colors and shades for your markups — you can even determine the thickness of the pencil marks.

Download your edited PDF file or share a link with your collaborators that enables them to view your edits online.
