Users can fill scanned forms with the Add Text tool (formerly called the Typewriter tool) or create professional click-and-fill forms in minutes. During this session, your session leader will show you how easy it is to convert paper forms to PDFs. Topics covered include using the Add Text tool to fill scanned paper forms, using the Prepare Form tools to create click-and-fill forms, adding and placing fields and using calculations in forms, and automatically collecting data from filled PDFs.
