>Since the Properties of this document says that Form Filling is Allowed, does that constitute the enabling of document rights?
No. That only means that if it had fillable fields, you could fill them in.
Unfortunately, those instructions you pasted aren't clear enough. Someone using Acrobat has to enable the typewriter tool first before you can use it.
John, I am having the same exact problem as you are. Everything you stated. I cannot find typewriter either. Does anyone have a workaround or a fix? VERY FRUSTRATING. Need to be able to fill in these forms I have downloaded, I do not want to fill in by hand. Thanks!
Let's be very clear about this. If you only have Reader you cannot
fill in a form UNLESS it has been specially prepared by the person who
made the form.
They can set it up so you can type into fields. OR, they can set it up
so you can use a special typewriter tool. If they didn't do either of
these things, they expect you to print out the form and write on it.
Where appropriate, you might wish to complain to the organisation who
made the forms.
