Join Brian Wood for an in-depth discussion in this video Simplifying form creation, part of Acrobat 9 Pro Getting Started.
Using Acrobat 9, you can easily create fillable PDF forms that virtually anyone…can complete and save electronically. When opening a PDF form, Acrobat allows…you to control the design and content including adding interactivity such as…dropdown menus, text fields and more. So I have got this file open right now…which was created in InDesign. It could be from Word or any other program for…that matter. It's been converted to a PDF but it is not quite a fillable form yet.…I'll go out here and try and click, I can't do anything to it. So we need to…remedy that. In Acrobat 9, by clicking on the Forms task button, I can see the…new Form Wizard. Form Wizard allows us to create forms in several different…ways. We can take an existing electronic document, be it from any application you can see here,…a paper form or no existing form.…
Now if you are on the Mac platform, you will not see No existing form and if…you've purchased Adobe Acrobat Professional or Adobe Acrobat Professional Extended,…you get No existing form on the Windows platform. This is a separate application which allows you to create forms.…

Q: When creating a bookmark in Acrobat 9 using the Select tool then choosing New Bookmark, the bookmark should be titled after the selected section. Instead, the bookmark is titled "Untitled.” What could be causing this issue?
A: Normally, when using the Select text and images tool to create a bookmark, the bookmark should automatically be named after whatever text is selected. However, there may be security on the file or the selected text could actually be an image. Either one of these conditions would prevent the bookmark from being named properly. If the file is protected, remove the protection or contact the file’s owner. In the case of an image, the bookmark can be renamed by clicking on the bookmark title.
Q: In an Acrobat 9 Pro form, what is the best way to set up form field navigation so that clicking on any row of a table redirects to an associated text box on a different page?
