Can you open it in Preview?
If so, can you fill it out in Preview?
If not, it may be a problem with the PDF.
I opened in preview. Same result...the pdf file opens like before but I cannot enter any text onto the questionaire. Do I need to do a restart to get the new pdf download to work properly? Any other ideas?
I'd say if you're getting the same results in Reader AND Preview.... it's the common factor... the PDF. Try downloading it again.
It could also be locked. (sometimes... not very often, but sometimes... someone will inadvertently lock a fillable PDF and it really makes a mess for the people they make it available to)
Your answers were absolutley correct for the described problem but not for my ID 10T error. The problem was that this pdf form package was actually 235 pages of simplified government instructions which meant that I, the user, ended up making the common ID 10T error in interpreting them. I guess you could say I got off course. Everything thing is working now.
Thanks so much for coming to help. Case closed.
