Creating a PDF with fill-in fields

by hoosierfjc / August 5, 2010 8:51 AM PDT

I want to create a PDF document (questionnaire) to send to my classmates...allow them to fill-in the answers and then send it back to me...all in digital format. Is there a simple way to do this? I have middle-of-the-road computer skills, but can't figure this one out!

That's what Adobe Acrobat can do

but the basic version, I think, retails for about 300 bucks. Are asking for a free program with the same capabilities?

...not willing to pay the proverbial arm & leg

This is for a 50th class reunion and not for the Forbes 500 club!

I'm willing to pay out-of-my-pocket, but within reason....IF anything is out there besides Acrobat.

If anyone can provide any "reasonable" suggestions, I'd be very greatful

See if this looks promising

I've not used it for what you intend to do but have used this and PDF 995 for other purposes such as scanning to PDF. Sorry but can't offer much more. Adobe owns rights but has made allowances for others to help distribute in that format for strategic reasons. They've yet to give it all away free, AFAIK.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
