Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you needed to fill a PDF form but it was not editable or you could not do it because you did not have the right software? In the past, you probably had to print the form, fill it out by hand, sign and date it. Then, you would either scan it or send a hard copy to wherever it needed to go. Besides needing a printer and a scanner, the whole process was just too time consuming. Now, with PDFfiller, you can create an editable PDF form online without downloading or installing any software. To get started, upload a PDF form to your account and open it in the editor. Any PDF document is instantly editable in PDFfiller. You can create checkboxes, drop-down lists and fillable fields for text, numbers, signatures, initials, dates and photos. The procedure for adding fields is the same for all field types. Open the Add Fillable Fields tab on the right.
