create pdf forms
« on: August 14, 2012, 09:32:14 AM »
hello!

in an existing pdf file, I want to insert editable forms in specific positions, for example in this :

http://www.walgreens...rescriberFaxForm.pdf

I want to specify the fonts, the wrapping, the input (eg. only digits allowed in specific form and only specific number of digits), etc

how can I do that?

thanks!

In my experience, there are painfully few options for this...
You can try http://www.pdfescape.com/
Also, you might see if this can make text fields.  
http://sourceforge.n...or/?source=directory

EDIT:  Actually...  Upon searching Sourceforge, I just found this
http://pdfformsdesigne.sourceforge.net/
Which I'm going to definitely check out.  Judging by the Wink tutorials
http://pdfformsdesig.../videos/overview.htm
it looks like you CAN make editable forms.

EDIT2:  http://sourceforge.net/projects/openpdf/?source=recommended

Edit3:  Hey pdfformsdesigner worked!  (sort of) 
https://docs.google....TpftPWTNhb3VpN2otTUE
Open this pdf and look on page 2.

So I printed this forum post using the
http://www.cutepdf.c...s/CutePDF/writer.asp
virtual printer, then put a text field on it.
