The Designer Environment (Windows Only)

If you're new to Adobe Designer you'll love it. You can open a Word document and use Designer to turn it into an electronic form. With Designer you can add interactive elements such as radio buttons, text fields, check boxes, and more—even bar codes in 32 different formats. All it takes is a simple drag-and-drop from the Library palette, and the Object palette offers a wide array of customization options. Adding colors, adjusting borders, rotating text fields—it's all done with just a few clicks and drags of the mouse. Viewers can use the Adobe Acrobat Reader to fill in the form and then submit it to a preset email address by hitting a simple button embedded in the form itself. Or they can print it for faxing or mailing. If you prefer, you can create new forms from scratch. Designer comes with more than 20 predesigned templates to choose. Or you can open an existing PDF and add form elements to it. You can also add pizzazz to your existing forms by importing images in a variety of popular formats.

Whichever way you want to use it, Designer is a delight to work with. After your form has been created, you can save it as a static or dynamic electronic PDF form file or as an XML file. And if you need to make continuous changes to the same form you can save it as a Designer template.
