If you need more control about details, you may want to check DynaPDF functions.

Your changes are only done in memory, so please remember to write modified pdf back to disk, e.g. by using PDFKit.WriteToPath. Or use PDFKit.GetPDFDocument to get a PDF for storing in a container.

This function requires a native path. Use Path.FileMakerPathToNativePath to convert a FileMaker path to a native path if required. If you like to have the user choose the path, you can use FileDialog functions.
For Server be aware that server has limited permissions and may not be able to access all files on a computer.
