PDF forms can be much more than something to print, fill out by hand, and fax back. Interactive fields allow for a web-like user experience, and submission via email or server can enable a truly paperless exchange of information. Acrobat 9 Pro makes interactive form creation and distribution more powerful and flexible than ever, but such a wealth of features and options can be daunting. Brian Wood focuses exclusively on the nuances of this process in Acrobat 9 Pro: Creating Forms. He discusses the fundamentals of Acrobat forms, fields, and distribution, and explores the built-in form creation tools available in Acrobat 9. Brian also demonstrates the XML-driven forms that can be created by the Windows-only LiveCycle Designer application, included with Acrobat 9 Pro and Pro Extended. Example files accompany the course.
Topics include:

* Detecting form fields in an imported PDF and adding new form fields from scratch
* Creating text fields, radio buttons, checkboxes, combo boxes, and text areas
* Using field calculations, notation, and JavaScript
* Adding digital signature fields and Submit/Reset buttons
* Distributing forms via, email, or a website, then tracking results
* Comparing Acrobat and LiveCycle Designer forms
* Using LiveCycle workspaces
* Creating LiveCycle menus, tables, fragments, and objects
* Understanding accessibility in LiveCycle Designer
* Distributing LiveCycle forms via shared distribution
* Viewing data
