Recommendations for form creation software?
« on: May 10, 2006, 10:49:21 AM »
Anyone know fo a software that can be used to create forms (like a pdf with fields in it, for example, and application form)?  I know acrobat can do this, but the end-user can't save the form unless he has the full acrobat, which people rarely have, so they either have to print it or submit the information online.  I need something that can be saved to the computer and recalled later.  Also, Omniform does this, but i was wondering if there were any other alternatives.  Omniform creates an exe file that is standalone, so no viewer or anything is needed, the user just runs the exe, and fills out the form and all the information is saved in that exe file, it's pretty nice.  However, Omniform hasn't been updated for years, and for some reason, I can't find any competitors out there.

How about http://www.ez-forms.com/index.html (never tried it but there is a free trial version)

Also http://www.colorpilo...dfmaker_example.html might be worth a look

ez-forms looks very interesting, I have to try it out.  What's cool about an omniform form is that everything is self-contained in one file, that's the best way.  So anyone can get the file and use it without having to use a viewer or any other software.

I'll have to look at ez-form, looks like it does a lot of cool things.
