Instructions and Help about How to Make A PDF Fillable
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you needed to fill a PDF form but it was not fillable or you could not do it because you did not have the right software? In the past, you probably had to print the form, fill it out by hand, sign and date it. Then, you would either scan it or send a hard copy to wherever it needed to go. Besides needing a printer and a scanner, the whole process was just too time consuming. Now, with pdfFiller, you can make fillable PDF forms online without downloading or installing any software. To get started, upload a PDF form to your account and open it in the editor. Any PDF document is instantly editable in pdfFiller. You can create checkboxes, drop-down lists and fillable fields for text, numbers, signatures, initials, dates and photos. The procedure for adding fields is the same for all field types. Open the Add Fillable Fields tab on the right.
Select the field you need, for instance the Text field, then drag and drop it where it should be in the document. Resize the field by dragging its corners or edges. Use the text formatting tools to preset the field’s text format including the font, size, color and alignment of text. It will be impossible to change the text format while filling the field.
To see what the field will look like, press the Preview button and type something inside the field.
To delete a fillable field, click on the trash can icon above it. To add a checkbox, click its icon, then drag and drop it where you want to place it.
When you resize a checkbox, the next one will be of the same size. You can customize any fillable field. Click Advanced in the right pane and select the options you need. For instance, you can format the checkbox to be filled with a simple checkmark, “X”, or circle.
The Database Field Name is a very useful feature if you create a form with the purpose of gathering information from other people. It makes it easier to export data from the completed forms to a spreadsheet for further processing. As soon as you’ve added fillable fields, you can fill the form yourself or send it to others with a request to complete it.
