Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

No and no again ! Different code. Technically speaking it is impossible to inspect element console on a PDF. But it is possible for a html file such as a web site.

    Keep in mind, there's a powerful tool hiding in any browser: Inspect Element.

    Right-click on any webpage, click Inspect.

    If you have an existing PDF file, the answer is no, you will not be able to change it by those means. You would need a fully functional PDF editor like Adobe Acrobat. The other option would be a converter program like PDF To Word Online that creates a new file and allows you to edit the new format.

    Yes, it is possible to convert any document (which is eligible) to any format through online converter. But keep in mind, this is privacy threat. If the document has some secret contents then it is better not to go for online conversion.

    You can try some third party tools either free or cost.
