    Forms

    VLGFGP

      I have Adobe Acrobat XI Standard but when I go to create a form it tells me when I try to save that I need to purchase and upgrade.  On the box it states that is part of this version.  Please advise.

          Hi;

           

          What does it say on the box?  There is a "FormsCentral" desktop application that is included with Acrobat Pro XI, but not with Standard. 

           

          When you say that you go to create a form can you describe the steps and what you see?  A screen shot would help a lot.  I am not sure what you are seeing or what the Standard box says, but FormsCentral is not part of Acrobat Standard, only Professional XI.

           

          Thanks,

          Josh

            See item 7 – what is the cost to upgrade to Pro so I have the forms capability?

              What is item 7?

               

              You would want to contact Support about an "upgrade", I don't see such an upgrade path so I think you'd have to return Standard and purchase Pro.

               

              If it has been less than 30 days since purchase you can return it: http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/return-cancel-or-change-order.html#Retur n your order

              If it has been more than 30 days I would recommend contacting support and inquiring about an exception ("Contact Support" widget at the bottom): https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat.html#

               

              What you get with Acrobat Pro XI in relation to FormsCentral is the ability to create unlimited PDF forms.  It does not give you a "subscription" to the FormsCentral service.  If you want to create forms and use the FormsCentral service for both web and PDF forms and data collection and analisys you could just subscribe to FormsCentral and skip the Acrobat upgrade.  You can try FormsCentral for free by signing up online to see if it would work for you. https://www.acrobat.com/formscentral/en/home.html  With the free sign in you can create one web form to collect up to 50 responses, with the paid service you can also save/distribute the form as a PDF.  The "form authoring" for PDF in both cases is the same.

               

              Thanks,

              Josh

                Josh,

                 

                Can you tell me if a macro can be created in Adobe or a place for forms to be entered on each person’s machine to access from the program?

                  That question would best be asked in the Acrobat Forums, not sure if the Forms sub-forum would be best or another since it is not a form specific question...  Here is the Acrobat Forums: http://forums.adobe.com/community/acrobat

                   

                  Thanks,
