I scanned a document with my Canon MG5120 and then converted it to PDF, but am unable to fill it in when opened. Wouldn't I be considered the creator of the form, and therefore have the authority to make it a fillable form? There were no settings within the Canon scanning application regarding making a form fillable - only security settings. Is there a way to convert the document to a fillable form within Reader itself? (Reader X, version 10.1.1)
No, unless the application that creates the PDF automatically adds interactive form fields, there's nothing you can do with Reader to make it fillable. Acrobat is normally the application that's used to add form fields to a document, but there are open source programs such as Open Office and Scribus that can create PDF forms as well.
I was afraid as much...thanks for your speedy reply; I can now move on to other methods of making this a fillable form.
