Recently I was faced with a new challenge. I was asked to create a wireframe for a new section of our website. While there a bunch of great wireframe tools, I try to avoid adding more software to my workflow.
Before we get into it, there are definitely apps that specialize in creating wireframes. However, since I’m comfortable using Soda PDF, I realized most of the functionality I needed was already at my disposal.
I wanted to share my journey through creating a dynamic wireframe in a PDF document.
Using PDF instantly takes your freelancing game to the next level. Imagine a single tool that not only makes you look more professional, but helps you save, secure, and collaborate with clients…all while helping you save time and make MORE MONEY. It’s really a match made in heaven.

We get this question all the time from PDF diehards, so we thought we’d fully breakdown all 6 of the main PDF standards. Plus we found two bonus portable document format standards to satiate your appetite.
Don’t get too excited. You’ve still got a blog to read.
NOTE: In all seriousness, if you choose the wrong PDF format for your document, you could run into serious issues securing, printing, or sharing your docs. And you definitely don’t want that. Read carefully and choose the right format.
