If you haven’t had the opportunity to sign up for a FREE Acrobat.com account I suggest you do so in the near future. You get a handful of some really fantastic tools which include Buzzword, Adobe Connect Now, a PDF tool, and some online storage space. Buzzword is the perfect application for laying out a document that will eventually be turned into a PDF interactive form in Acrobat 9.
Acrobat 9 is Adobe’s newest PDF publication tool and the Adobe “wizards” have made it easier than ever to turn a simple document into an interactive PDF. In this tutorial I’ll demonstrate how to:
- layout a form using Adobe’s free Buzzword service (really cool)
- export the file to PDF
- convert the PDF to a digital form using Acrobat 9′s “Form Field Wizard”
- configure the fields to calculate form data
