There are many ways to design and create a PDF form.…You can design a form in Word, you can make it entirely…in Adobe Acrobat or you can design it in an application like Illustrator.…And then export it as a PDF and add the form fields in Acrobat.…Or if you want a solution that can give you really great…design tools, and the ability to add form fields, you can use InDesign.…With InDesign you can create any page layout you want,…and then add the form fields on top of that.…
