    Maybe need an app to convert to a word doc...
    Often easier to print the form use a pen and post it

    What are you using. Windows, android etc

    Get yourself Foxit reader which is free and excellent. Once installed, do ctrl and J together in chrome to open the downloads. Click on view in folder, then right click the file and 'open with' Foxit.

    You need Adobe reader to open PDFs.

    OK in this instance but not for android.
    Adobe won't licence it.

    IMG_4351.jpg I recently had to fill in a form and sign it.
    If using an Apple iPhone or iPad then use this app it is brilliant. Adobe fill and sign.
    It was free from the App Store.

    Foxit PDF reader works well and you fill in forms on it.
