It's easy to make an attractive, clear PDF form using Adobe LiveCycle Designer, which is included with Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional for Windows. You can transform any Adobe PDF file into an interactive form with various field types and formatting options. Advanced form designers can use scripting features to add even more functionality to PDF forms.
In Acrobat, open the PDF file that you want to convert to a fillable form. Then choose Advanced > Forms > Make Form Fillable in Designer. Acrobat opens Designer. The New Form Assistant appears.
Choose import options.
Verify that the document that you want to use as a form is selected, and click Next. Then choose import options. Choose Maintain Editability if you want to be able to edit the text later.
Designer opens a copy of the document. The original remains open in Acrobat so that you can refer to it. Because Designer didn't create the document, it must import the PDF file.
Select a return method.
Select the method by which completed form data will be returned to you. If you select a Submit option, a Submit button is automatically added to the page; specify the e-mail address to which the data should be sent. If you select a Print option, a Print button is automatically added to the page. Click Finish to close the New Form Assistant.
