Have you ever been asked to fill out a mind-bogglingly complicated PDF form? Even when they’re designed well, complex forms can be hard to understand. Think tax forms and car registrations. When designing these types of documents, you don’t want your clients scratching their heads. Tool tips can help!
Now Adobe Acrobat has a tool tips feature, but it’s not convenient to get to, since you have to update each field’s properties individually. Luckily, you can easily add tool tips during the design process in InDesign and they carry over when you export the form to PDF. Want to know more? Watch today’s free InDesign Secrets video.
