    Can anyone help??
    I save a pdf document from the web It is a form with blanks which I would like to fill in and save the changes I know I can print the form out and fill it in by hand. Is there a way that I can do the filling in via my computer. At present, when I open this document , it is read only and I cannot edit it
    Thanks in advance

    You can do it if you have a full copy of Adobe Acrobat (costs) but you can also edit it in StarOffice (free software which you can download)

    Get the form up on your screen, fill in the boxes with a white board marker, then press "send"...job done, use a T towel to clean your screen. I'm gonna get a job in IT i am.:Rofl1:

    You can take a snapshot (picture) of the pdf file and save in Word.

    Send the 'picture' to the back to allow textboxes to show on top.

    Then, create text boxes and move them over the document and fill in.
