    Default pdf with editable fields

    Hi guys,

    Client wants me to create a dpf and to have empty fields for them to type into. Is this possible with Xara?
    Thanks.

    Possibly with JotForms: https://www.jotform.com/fillable-pdf-form-creator/

    Thanks seen that but client wants a nice redesign of page with fields not your ordinary ones. I thought I can design it in xara and then export as pdf and possibly then create the fields.

    Not that I know of in Xara. You can do this in Acrobat though.

    There are other PDF Editors that can create form fields.

    I wouldn't use PDF forms in this day and age, though.

    Mike, could you name one or two that are not too expensive (reasonable price for a one time project)?

    I normally would recommend Adobe -InDesign/Acro Pro for these types of jobs. If you're looking for a free solution you should consider the following: Used LibreOffice which works well and your clients can download the programme, tinker with your design, then export as PDF. Works well with with a printable solution which can be attached to email. The other one that I have used a few years ago was AbleWord but this is aimed at Word users but as an all round PDF editor it will import all PDF's but maybe a pig to edit and might not quite have the same look as the original PDF.
    Design is thinking made visual.

    Thank you for the info guys. @Albacore would I be able to use xara instead of indesign?
