Every now and then you probably need to download and fill out a form in PDF format. If the form was set up correctly, it’s easy to just fill it out digitally, using Adobe Reader. However, not all forms are done this way, and sometimes you have to print out the PDF, fill in the form by hand, and then either fax or snail mail the document.
That is, that is what you had to do before Formulate. Formulate is a freeware application that allows you to overlay text on to an existing PDF document. It’s currently in version 0.0.0, has no app icon, and the interface is a bit clunky… but it works.
Make sure to download the practice form from the developer’s site, as it has the instructions on how to use Formulate.
tip: Although Formulate has a “Save” menu item for after you’ve filled in your form, it doesn’t appear to work. But luckily there is a work-around. After you’ve filled in the form, hit Print, and then use the Save as PDF button in the print dialogue box.
