Tips for Using Adobe PDF Forms

Viewing Portable Document Format (PDF) Files

If you are unable to view the online form or document it may be due to the fact that you do not have the latest version of Adobe Reader. You may download the latest version free from Adobe Systems.

Using PDF Files

Adobe Reader will allow you to complete the forms online and print them or simply print them and fill then out manually.

If you choose to complete a form online simply place your cursor in the first field of the form to be completed and tab to succeeding fields until all the desired fields are completed.

Saving A Completed PDF Form

Enterable PDF forms cannot be saved unless you have Adobe Acrobat. Adobe Reader alone will not allow PDF forms to be saved.

To save a PDF form:

  • Click on "Save a copy" (disk icon) button on the command bar on your browser. (Note the File> Save As feature will not work in your browser window.) As previously mentioned, data entered into enterable PDF forms will not be saved unless you have Adobe Acrobat.
