PDFill is a PDF editor available for Windows. It allows users to import and edit a PDF file and then export the edited version of their document.

While editing a PDF, PDFill users can save their current editing project as a PFL file. Doing so allows the user to retain a copy of their edits and make further edits in the future (by reopening the PFL file).

  1. Select File → Open Project to Resume Editing from PDFill's menu bar.
