    I wanted to create a PDF form that can be saved.

    Asked by mariasoledad on June 29, 2012 at 01:57 PM

    I created a pdf form that I would like to email to my client. But once I save it ,the data cannot be saved. You have to print the file and cannot mark any checkboxes. Is there a cost to create a PDF form that can be saved? I don't want to include the form on my website. I wanted to find a way to email to clients and then have them complete the form and email it back to me. thank you.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    This is mostly related to Adobe Reader software limitations. You can use Free Foxit PDF Reader or PDFescape to fill out PDF forms.

    However, please note that our PDF forms are pretty limited. If you would like to be able to save marked Check Boxes, please use one option per Check Box.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
