    How to create a fillable PDF from InDesign?

    ziowolvie Level 1

      Hi everybody!

      Hope there's no thread about that... by the way. I have to create a fillable PDF from a InDesign file.

      I try to explain: with ID I'd create a file with text form, tables, images with text forms on them etc.... Now I have to export that in PDF and I want to transform the forms (sorry for the bad english, I'm italian) in fillable ones in PDF. How can I do it?


      Thanks to everyone!

          Export the ID file as an Interactive PDF.

          Open the PDF form in Acrobat XI  and then:

          File > Save As Other > Reader Extended PDF > Enable More Tools (includes for fill-in & save). . . Your users will be able to fill in the form and save it (assuming they have the later versions of Acrobat Reader).

          Make sure you keep a copy of your original PDF with a different file name as once you've created a Reader Enabled PDF Form you can't change it.
