I want to create a reader feedback form for an online magazine. Can I create a form using FormsCentral, embed that form in an Adobe Acrobat PDF-based magazine, distribute multiple copies of that one magazine (one file, multiple readers), have readers complete and send the form, and have their responses captured? Thank you.
We do not support embedding PDF forms inside another PDF but you can 'package' it in a PDF Portfolio. The portfolio would contain your magazine and the PDF form. It would be one file that you distribute to your readers but the form wouldn't be embedded in the actual magazine.
You can do what you describe and you don't have to use a portfolio, just add the PDF form as an attachment. You can provide a link in the main PDF that will open the PDF form attachment, but you'll have to set up everything in Acrobat. The exact process depends on which version of Acrobat you're using.
