Adobe Acrobat XI - Creating Forms

Video Description

In this Acrobat XI - Creating Forms training course, Michael Hoffman shows you how to take advantage of one of the most powerful features available in Adobe Acrobat - forms. Acrobat is more than just a simple PDF reader, it puts powerful form management tools at your fingertips, and Michael will show you how to take full advantage of them! This tutorial begins with a brief overview of creating the basics of your forms in Microsoft Word or Adobe InDesign. You will then learn how to import these forms into Adobe Acrobat XI. Once your forms are in Acrobat, you will learn how to add and edit different form elements such as text fields, radio buttons, and even calculated fields. You will also learn how to add JavaScript to your form elements, and how to collect and track your form data. Finally, Michael shows you how to use Adobe Forms Central to create, distribute, track and share your forms. Once you have completed this form creation video training course for Adobe Acrobat XI, you will be familiar with the tools available to build, create forms, and collect data from distributing them. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.
