Filling out PDF Forms

How to type into PDF forms

By using Foxit Reader 'typewriter tool' you can fill in PDF forms even if they were only designed to be printed out. Here's how to do it (screenshots added to illustrate the steps):
  • Open the PDF in Foxit Reader
  • In the menu, choose Comments=>Typewriter=>Typewriter
  • Click on the page where you would like to start typing. You can change the font, colour etc to suit.
  • Type your text! Foxit reader does not 'understand' the document, so it's up to you to reposition the cursor for each new text box.
  • Remember to save the document periodically
