    How do I create a "fill-in-the-blanks" worksheet?

    alafin

      I am a teacher that works with students who have various needs - some of them have a difficult time writing with a pencil. There are tons of great teacher resources out there that I can print and use for students to write on. However online worksheets are another story. I came across the idea of using AdobeForms as an adaptation to writing.

       

      For example...

       

      Yesterday was _____________________. Tomorrow will be _________________.

       

      Or even:

       

      My n__me is _____________.

       

      Can anyone help me? Right now the only way I can do a fill in the blank is to have a field below a blurb of text, but I don't know how to do a field in between text.

       

      Help!

          If I were doing this I wouldn't use FormsCentral. I would create the layout in InDesign or a word processor and convert to PDF using Acrobat. I'd then add the form fields in Acrobat where the blank spaces are. You can limit the number of characters in a field and a lot more. Do you have Acrobat available to you? If not another option is to use the free OpenOffice /NeoOffice and create your layout and form fields and then export to PDF.
