Dynamic PDFs allow you to neatly fill out forms that are in Adobe Acrobat (also known as PDF) format. After filling out a dynamic PDF, you may print out your filled-in form. The result is a form that is easy to read.
Free Acrobat Reader users: You cannot save your filled out form; the free version of Acrobat only saves the blank form.
Acrobat Full Version users: You can save or email your filled out form.
How can you tell whether or not you have a PDF file open?There is a simple way to check to see if the form can be filled out dynamically on your screen. Move the mouse cursor over an area that looks like it could be filled out. If the mouse pointer changes to a text cursor you are able to type information into the respective field on the form.
Free Acrobat Reader users have two options:
Save the form to your hard drive or a diskette so you can fill it out later. Click the save icon SAVE icon. Choose where you want to save the file in "Save In", give the file a name in "File name," and click SAVE.
The information you fill out on the form cannot be saved with the free version of Acrobat, only the blank form.
Fill out the form and print. After filling out a field, press the [TAB] key on your keyboard to jump to the next field on the form. Type your information for that field, and press [TAB] again to jump to the next field. This is the easiest way to make sure you do not accidentally miss any of the fields.
