    Hi guys
    I'm trying to do a job application at the moment, and have to fill out a form I have in pdf format, and then e-mail it back to the company. How do I manage to edit the pdf file to add in stuff I type?

    Normally if someone wants, they can make the pdf editable and then you simply click on the field, enter the info and save. If they haven't done this it's gonna make your job much more difficult -you'll have to get hold of Acrobat I think.

    That's very strange, normally when you get emailed a form in pdf format they want you to print it off and send it back by post. Anyway, there's plenty of free ways of doing it. Try something like this.

    Edit: Actually, that's assuming that you get a free trial or something

    I'm having the same problem. Somebody converted the file for me (from .pdf. to word using Office 2007) then literally created the tables for me. The form itself looks perfect even though it's a forgery. I don't know of any other way to do it (well, not without paying for some special Adobe thing). Hopefully someone else can offer a better method. I tried it with some downloaded software and I could never get the formatting/tables to transfer to Word.

    Does it keep the formatting (i.e. the tables etc)?
