Hi,

I was wondering what is the best way to add text to PDF file. I have some forms in PDF format that I want to fill. I only have Adobe Acrobat reader need to know what is the easiest way of doing this. Does having Adobe Acrobat Writer help or do I need anything else.

Thanks

Just google add text to pdf mate and you'll get an abundance of hits with progs that allow you to do it.

Just search in the usual place after that ;)

Hi and thanks for reply,

I tried some of the stuff in google search result, but most of them trying to convert the pdf to text file. Since the form I am using is not in English then I don't work. I need to be able to add the text to file without needing to convert it. I know touch up text tool will help but when i try to use it it dont work. I chech the restrictions and there is no restriction on Filling of form field.

Thanks
Hoss

Not too sure then mate. I know you can insert whole pages of different formats using Adobe Professional but not sure about lines of text.

Used something sometime back that allowed me to edit the PDF pages, text and graphics if I recall. Not sure where it is at the mo so will try and find it and let you know.

You can use Acrobat pro. It also depends on how the orginal forms were created, if they CRM then you might not be able to edit them.
