# Ubuntu – What software can I use to write on PDFs

pdf

I'm used to OS X where the system PDF viewer will let you draw and write text on top of any PDF document. You can then flatten it and save as a new PDF. It saves paper and time so you can fill in any form without printing it and scanning it back to the computer.

It also lets you insert a scanned image of your signature.

Is there software for Ubuntu that would do that?

• xournal. I use it in conjunction with python-whiteboard daily. After you're done, just export as pdf. (The video shows how I use it.)
