Creating Your First PDF Form
These 3 tutorials are a beginners introduction into using Acrobat to create fillable and interactive forms.
Acrobat implements 2 different forms technologies, XFA and AcroForms. These videos deal with the creation of AcroForms. XFA forms are created in the LiveCycle Designer tool and will be dealt with in another set of videos.
AcroForms are the original forms implementation in PDF. This technology is tightly integrated into Acrobat and allows for forms features to be integrated into any kind of PDF document using any kind of PDF feature (unlike XFA forms). So you could say that it is for implementing document oriented forms.
The first video is a general dicussion of the overall process. The second video demonstrates the complete process from start to mostly finished, using Acrobat 8 Professional. The third video shows how to perform the same forms creation process using Acrobat 9 Professional. It points out the differences and similarities between these two versions of Acrobat and demonstrates more of the forms creation process.
