How to create a multi-part Adobe PDF form

Posted on 2009-05-01
Last Modified: 2013-11-12
I have been asked to create a pdf form that someone can fill in basic contact information in, then send it via email to another person for them to check an approving signature field then send the pdf back to the original person. I have acrobat pro but the person that wants the form does not and is not willing to put out the bucks for the program.

Could anyone give me some suggestions on how to go about this or point me to a tutorial to accomplish this?

    Accepted Solution

    Once you create the form and drop in blank signature fields, the people on each end should only need the Adobe Reader (not full Acrobat) to fill in the form, save it, send it, and place their digital signatures on it.

    Let me know if you need further guidance.
