This morning a client asked me for a way to edit a PDF form on their Mac. This is easy to do if you own a copy of Adobe's Acrobat software but there is also a free way if you are running the Mountain Lion OS on machine. I found a great little article on the Mac Observer website that shows you how to fill out your PDF forms using the Preview software that comes with your Mac. When you open the form with Preview, the software will analyze your PDF and look for any text boxes, check boxes, or radio buttons on the form and allow you to fill them in or edit them. Important: to make this work, Preview needs to be in Text Selection Mode before you start your editing. Check out the original article here on Mac Observer for more information.
