Forms to Fill-In? You Don’t Need a Typewriter!

Posted by Library Blog on 01/21/2009 at 12:00 AM

Adobe Acrobat Professional 8 software is available in the library computer labs. The software allows you to enable the typewriter feature (indicated by a typewriter icon in the upper right corner of the pdf document once enabled) for use in the Adobe Reader software. With the typewriter feature enabled on a pdf form (such as a bar exam application), you can type in the required information on the form, save it, and edit it as necessary before printing the form.

You will initially need to save your pdf document to a USB drive and then open it using the Adobe Acrobat Professional 8 software. The typewriter feature is found under the “Tools” menu. Once saved with the typewriter feature enabled, you can work on your file using any computer with a current copy of the free Adobe Reader software.

If you need help using the Adobe Acrobat Professional 8 software, do not hesitate to ask the Computer Lab Assistant on duty or Phyllis O’Neill, the Public Services Assistant, for assistance.
