FormMaker: Creating a Fillable, Interactive PDF in InDesign Has Never Been Easier!
Hassle-free interactive, fillable PDF forms straight out of InDesign
With InDesign’s half-baked interactive PDF form features, any form formatting, validation, or calculation has to be done in Acrobat.
This means entering a world of pain: Every time an edit is made to the InDesign file, the form has to be reformatted, reprogrammed, and reset in Acrobat!
A small change to the layout or text of the form that should take less than a minute can take over an hour (!) for complex forms because so much has to be redone in Acrobat each time a change is made.
With FormMaker, you have access to all Acrobat’s form field functionality – in InDesign!
FormMaker eliminates that “extra step” you must take when creating interactive PDFs in InDesign.
This means that with FormMaker you get interactive PDFs straight from InDesign, complete with font formatting (font, size, color), text formatting (alignment, rich text), comb fields, date fields, simplified calculations, and much more.
In fact, almost anything you can do in Acrobat to a form, you can now do in InDesign with FormMaker!
Use code-free formatting options to turn the user’s input into correctly formatted numbers, dates, times, zip codes and much more.
Use easy-to-apply validations to ensure that numbers, dates, or selections are within valid limits.
Use simple calculation options to make one form field display the sum, or product, or average, etc., of other forms fields.
As an added bonus, because no edits or workarounds are needed in Acrobat, interactive PDF form accessibility remains intact – the PDF form remains as accessible as InDesign can make it.
With FormMaker you can make a truly fully interactive, useful PDF form inside InDesign without needing to do anything in Acrobat!
The final result is a rich, interactive form experience for the end user: A standard PDF that can be opened by anyone with the free Adobe PDF Reader.
