Creating PDF forms is easy with Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional!
NOV 14, 2003 — If you've used Adobe Acrobat 4.x or 5.x to create
PDF forms, you know that it's a bit of a clumsy process,
and you might have become
frustrated at times because of the limited support for formatting.
Acrobat 6.0 Professional changes all that — new features in Acrobat 6.0 Professional
make it easier to create PDF forms and give you a richer palette of formatting options.
Here is some basic information
about just a few of the forms-related improvements that Adobe has
included in Acrobat 6.0.
When creating PDF forms with Acrobat 4.x or 5.x, one of the big challenges was
lining up your form fields horizontally and vertically. Basically, you had to just
keep tweaking the width, height, horizontal position, and vertical position of each
form field until you got it just right. This was a tedious and time-consuming endeavor.
But with Acrobat 6.0 Professional, you have rulers, guides with "Snap-to,"
and measurement tools
that facilitate alignment tasks — so you can create good-looking PDF forms
much more quickly.

Rich Text Formatting

power than what was available in Acrobat 4.x and 5.x.
