    Fillable PDF Form Creation

    Asked by martinkingmbnl on June 11, 2015 at 04:43 AM

    When choosing the "create PDF Form" option from the drop down - the form is created but I'm unable to update any fields or select from the drop down boxes. The PDF form seems to be read only is this a permissions issue or am I doing something wrong?
