Creating Fillable PDF files!

  1. Go to https://www.pdfescape.com/windows/. We will be using the free online version today. I recommend making an account if you’d like to edit any fillable documents that you’ve already created.
Should look like this

2. Upload your PDF file

3. Once you’ve uploaded your file (I will be using a PDF file I was given earlier this year), it should look like this:

Creating Form Fields

There are a variety of different form fields you can choose from

TEXT: Ideal to use for short written fields such as “Name: “, “Age: “, “Email: “. Basically anywhere you only need to use one line for!

Click and drag on the page to insert new object

At the top, you will be able to see the font and size options. This is how the text that the user puts in will show up. I usually higher the font size to 15-17 depending on the text around it.

You can test out the text options by typing in the form field you just created

Right-click on a form field to find “Object Properties”. There will be more options.

TEXT PARAGRAPH: Self-explanatory title! Used for larger, multi-lined, form fields. Using the same steps we did for the TEXT tool we can get…

CHECKBOX: Also self-explanatory! Anywhere you’d like a checkbox, slap it on there. If you go to its object properties, you can customize the check type to different icons (such as stars!)

It will automatically show up checked, so I like to uncheck it before I finish.

Those are the only tools I’ve had to use when converting documents into fillable PDFs, however, there are more options such as dropdown and listbox (where the user can choose an option from several choices). You can edit the options/choices in the Object Properties.

WHEN YOU’RE FINISHED

The blue save icon is… well… the saving button, and the green button below it lets you download your beautiful creation 🙂

Useful Google Chrome Extensions

1. LastPass

LastPass is a password manager that auto-fills in passwords for all of the accounts you save with this extension. You only have to remember one password: your LastPass password. This saves you time, headaches, and increases the security of your personal data.

2. Pinterest

This extension allows you to easily save items onto your Pinterest boards without navigating away from what you’re doing. What’s neat about this tool is that it shows you multiple pinnable items available on each website so you can save more than one item to your board at a time. (Normally, you would have to click into each blog post or image in order to separately pin each to your boards individually.)

3. OneTab

When you conduct research for a piece of content, it’s easy to get swamped in multiple open tabs with great resources you want to cite. The trouble is, once it comes time to write and refer back to the sources, it’s hard to navigate between all of the tabs. Luckily, OneTab lets you put multiple different URLs into a single tab for easy reference.

4. Momentum

Momentum is a simple Chrome extension that replaces blank new tabs with beautiful photography, inspiring quotes, weather reports, and a space for you to write down a priority for the day when you open up your browser for the first time.
