    Hi,
    I'm trying to find an App or website that allows me to modify PDF files on my Surface pro 2 tablet. Unfortunetely, All the apps I've found so far in the Windows store does not allow text boxes.
    I've also tried using online editing sites but All the onces I tried so far don't print properly.
    I just wan't to be able to add text directly on a PDF document using the Keyboard and print it afterwards.
    Any tricks?

    Also, does anyone knows how to convert a power point document into a PDF?

    Tank you!

    Converting PowerPoint is easy if using Office 2013, it is just a matter of selecting "Save as" and from the drop down chose PDF. PDF Authoring typically requires a desktop app like Adobe Acrobat. Another way is to create or open the document in Word and same as PowerPoint save as a PDF.

    Tank you, it work for converting a PP to a PDF, but I has to use Export instead of Save as.

    Concerning Adobe Acrobat, is it available on the Microsoft store? I only found Adobe reader and I Can't add text with This one.

    I just tried again opening a PDF in Word but it's way too distorted. I Can make modifications but I lose All the info that was in the PDF in the first place.

    Do you have any other advise?

    Sorry... just noticed this is posted in the Surface 2 Forum, not the Surface Pro 3 Forum....

    You are correct, Acrobat would require a non RT machine. I do not know of any MUI PDF Editor...
