The PDF File format introduced by Adobe has been the favorite for all when it comes to creating invoices, presentations, ebooks, etc. This is obvious from the portability and robustness of the pdf documents compared with file types like doc. Unlike the other popular doc file format, PDF files cannot be easily modified or edited.
