48. About Adobe Designer

Adobe Designer is a new application that enables users to create forms from scratch instead of having to convert a document created in another application into a PDF file and then adding form elements to that document. For years, the vast potential of PDF forms has been hamstrung by the lack of a powerful and user-friendly method for creating PDF forms. Although it's too soon to know whether Designer is going to be the key to widespread adoption of PDF forms, it is a wonderful tool and will be a boon to IT and design professionals in any corporate environment.

Designer users can choose from standard, sample, or custom templates, or they can use existing documents as form templates. Designer takes form creation beyond the basics of a simple form. For example, you can include a barcode in your form, so when the user fills it out and returns it to you, all you need is a common barcode scanner to extract the data from the form. Also, for the more advanced form designer, you can include an XML schema to create extremely powerful, interactive forms.
