Lesson 8. Creating Forms

Lesson 8. Creating Forms

Acrobat lets you create form fields that can be filled out by a user in Acrobat or Acrobat Reader. If all the proper software and hardware components are in place, form data can be submitted over the World Wide Web and collected in a database as with HTML forms.

In this lesson, you'll learn how to do the following:

  • Fill out a PDF form and spell check the entries.

  • Export information from one form and import it into another form.

  • Add form fields, format those fields, and copy them.

  • Use the forms layout grid.

  • Validate form fields to restrict entries to specific values or characters.

  • Perform mathematical calculations on two or more numeric form fields.

This lesson will take about 60 minutes to complete.

If needed, remove the previous lesson folder from your hard drive, and copy the Lesson08 folder onto it.
