How To Create Fillable PDF Forms With LibreOffice Writer

Writer can be used to create fillable PDF forms, being a great free, open source alternative to Adobe's Acrobat for this use case. LibreOffice is cross-platform too, so you can use it not only on Windows and macOS, but also on Linux.
PDF files may contain editable form fields that can be filled / edited and saved by the user. Thanks to this, documents may be filled using a keyboard, instead of having to print a document, fill it with a pen, and scan the document to be able to send it online.


If I was still running Dragon Defence Training I would have found this a most useful tool.

Enjoy :cool:

Handy to know - many years ago it was a real pain trying to find a "free" PDF editor that allowed forms. I'm glad to see this has improved :).

I can use that, good to know, thanks for the info.

I've been using Libre Office for several years now, last version I have of MS Office is 2007 which I only keep to send the occasional invoice by e-mail as an attachment.
