Whether you start with a scanned paper form or a simple form made in Microsoft Word, Excel, or another application, you can turn it into an intelligent PDF form with Acrobat DC.
Edit forms quickly.
Move fields around. Change headings. Insert buttons. Add, delete, and edit form fields or enable fields for signatures. You can even add calculations and data validation rules.
Collect information in fillable PDFs.
Email forms to others. Send links to forms stored locally or on a company server. View the status of replies. And send reminders to people who haven’t responded.
Enhance formatting, calculations, or validations in your forms. Assign actions to buttons. Connect to databases using Open Database Connectivity (ODBC).
How to create a fillable PDF form:
- Within Acrobat, click on the Tools tab and select Prepare Form.
- Select a file or scan a document. Acrobat analyzes your document and adds form fields automatically.
- Add new form fields from the top toolbar, and adjust the layout using tools in the right pane.
- Save your fillable PDF form and share it with others, or click Distribute to collect responses automatically.
