How to create an editable PDF?

Recommended Posts

I think we've discussed this before, but I can't find it here or in the old forums. Eric, maybe it was you who was looking for a solution?

 

Anyway, I have some forms that I want clients to fill out and I would like to do it in PDF format. I've googled, but I don't know which programs are the best and I'm afraid to download some of the unknowns I'm finding.

 

So, does anyone know of a good program (free is best, but low cost is okay, too) that allows you to create PDFs that others can fill in and then resave and send it back?

 

TIA! :)

You can try creating it in WORD and have customer fill it out and then when they send it back to you, you can use Cutepdf to convert it to a pdf.

Hello Susie

 

As I rememer, I was never able to find a free solution. I "think" you have to purchase the Adobe something or other in order to do that. I just settled on MS Word.

Thanks, guys. I don't have Word, so I'm definitely looking for a PDF method. I'll take a look!

For your purposes, could you use the "Enable usage rights in Adobe Reader" function (under Advanced in Acrobat Professional)? This will allow you to save a PDF file that can then be opened in Reader and re-saved.

Acrobat is required to edit PDF files... *sigh* Which is a pain...

 

However... Open office, and google docs can be saved as word docs and acrobat ~DOT~ com

 

It has a trial feature:

 

"Not quite sure yet? We also offer a free plan:

5 PDF file conversions in total, 3-person web conferencing, unlimited file downloads, online office applications, and forum-based support."
