Is there any software (reasonably priced) that will take a PDF form and allow you to fill in the form electronically rather than printing and completing by hand.

I have some PDF files that don't have the fields imbedded in them and would like to just type rather than hand write.....

    Accepted Solution

    Pdffill editor for $20:
    foxit pdf editor is $100 but it can work as a 30 day trial (if you only have some files and not expecting more)

    and the free solution will be to
    1. If you have microsoft office, you can use microsoft document imaging to convert pdf file to an mdi image. Which can be converted to tiff for better results using microsoft picture manager. If you do not have office (!) you can use a screen capture utility  to convert pdf to image.

    2. edit using a free image editor (irfanview can be a good choice ) open the image and type the text where you want to.

    3. convert to pdf using the free  pdf creator , though the resulting file will be image (larger size).
