It has an intuitive, easy-to-use interface that you can navigate even if you're new to Windows computers. And the fact that it's lightweight means you can install and use it on newer as well as older PCs.

How Can I Erase Something On A PDF? A Step-By-Step Guide

Step 1: Open the PDF document you want to edit

First off, make sure you have downloaded and installed PDF Eraser on your Windows device. In case you haven't, you can get the installer by clicking this link.

Now, open the PDF file that you want to edit. There are two ways of doing that. You can either drag the document and drop it on the PDF Eraser interface or you can click on the "Open PDF" button.

Step 2: Go to the page that contains the word that you want to delete

On the right side of PDF Eraser is a section that previews all the pages of your PDF document. Select the page that contains the word that you want to delete from the PDF.

Go the the page you want to edit

One of the best features of PDF Eraser is that it allows you to view pages as a list or thumbnail. The latter will come in handy when you want a sneak peek of what each page of the document contains. That's very important if you don't know the exact page that you need to find your way to.

On the other hand, if you already know the page where you want to delete a word, you can simply view pages as a list and then highlight that particular page.

Step 3: delete the word from the PDF file

Head over to "Delete Area" (on the toolbar) and make sure it's highlighted.

Now, go to the word that you want to delete and then draw an area around it (as if to highlight). PDF Erase will delete that word instantly. Just like that, you have deleted a word on a PDF file.

Do the same for every word that you want to delete on that page and then move to other pages and repeat the process. If you want to remove lines from PDF document, make sure that you select the entire line that you want to delete.

It's worth mentioning that this software allows you to add text to PDF as well. Therefore, if you delete a word or a bunch of words accidentally, you can always type them back. Similarly, if you were deleting a word so that you add a new one, you can type in the new word right after deleting the old one.

Step 4: save the PDF

Once you've finished editing out all the confidential and inappropriate words, go ahead and save the new PDF document. Click on "Save PDF".

Save the edited PDF file

PDF Eraser will automatically remove all the words and lines that deleted.
