Filling out forms. PDF forms

You can open PDF forms in PDF Expert for Mac to fill them out. Please, check the list of supported formats:

  • Acro forms created in Adobe Acrobat or similar ones.
  • Static XFA forms created in Adobe LiveCycle.
  • Dynamic XFA forms are not currently supported in PDF Expert for Mac.

The following fields are supported:

  • Text fields - click on the field to start typing.
  • Checkbox and radio button - click the appropriate box to make a selection.
  • Numbers fields and calculation - type the numbers in the numeric form fields and the calculations will be updated automatically.

Note: you can fill in fillable forms with interactive fields, however, not all forms are fillable. Interactive form fields will appear with a colored background if “Highlight form fields” setting is enabled in PDF Expert preferences.

If the form does not contain interactive form fields (the form is flat), you can fill it in using the Text tool to add text and the Signature tool to add signatures on the form.
