Working with interactive forms

When you open a PDF that contains an interactive form, the form fields are highlighted, inviting you to select a value from the drop-down list or type in some information.

If you encounter a form that cannot be filled out by simply typing text in the empty fields, use the Export tool to type the necessary information over the form. See also: Filling out forms.
