Topic: Auto-Form Creation from pre-existing Document?

Hello all,

Kind of a Newbie to Acrobat Pro 6. I purchased a copy for the use of my still forming business but have found a potentially alternate use that may be of benefit to me, i'm just not sure how to go about doing it.

My girlfreind is a Kindergarden Teacher and is seeking a new job for relocation purposes - a lot of the applications she finds are PDF files.

Currently she is printing them and using a type-writer to fill them in.

I was curious if there is any kind of a plug-in or simple way to take the pre-existing documents and turn the lines/boxes into form style where she could type into them via the PC and print them. It could save her hours.

I've been doing it by hand and entering all the form lines, etc. It is just so tiresome by hand and i question if it's even saving any time when you add in all the time i am using to create the forms!

If anyone has any tips please let me know. Thank you so much in advance!!!
