The form was created in Adobe Acrobat - you need the full version of Acrobat, the free Reader will not work. You can however also use other tools to create PDF forms (e.g. Nitro PDF Pro, which is cheaper than Acrobat).

I don't understand your question about the top left corner. I assume you are referring to the form in the related question, but I don't quite understand what you are referring to.

Which version of Acrobat do you have? There is a difference in Acrobat 9 and X.

Yes, Nitro PDF Pro can create PDF forms. Which version do you have? Here some information about creating forms with Nitro: http://blog.nitropdf.com/index.php/2011/03/07/design-form-in-nitro-pro/

You can edit the form, but you cannot save it with Reader - that's what the blue line is trying to say. Reader cannot save documents (at least not normal forms). So, your users can fill out the forms and then print them. With Adobe Acrobat (the full version), you can "reader enable" forms, so that a user with just Reader can save a modified file.

I tried Nitro PDF and it created a PDF document and I was able to select a Field but I was not allowed to enter any data in the field. I tried using the TOOLS but it would not llet me enter anything.

I am looking at PDF Nitro Pro version 5.5, and it does have the forms ribbon (and the Text Field button on it). Are you sure you have the correct application installed (and not just the Nitro Reader)?

You can upload documents to Experts-Exchange - just click on the "File" link right below the comment box.

This is not a PDF file - I assumed that you already had a PDF file with a form element, which users with Reader could not access. Did I misunderstand something?

Let me ask again: Do you have software that can add form fields to a PDF file (e.g. Adobe Acrobat or Nitro PDF Pro)?
