Work with Forms in a PDF
April 29, 2021 08:51 PM
Nitro Pro allows you to fill-out and submit interactive PDF forms, and to save a copy of the form including the information contained in its fields. Interactive forms are designed to collect the data you type into the fields, and can also perform other tasks like calculating field values or sending their data over the Internet. Static forms, on the other hand, are scans of a paper form or non-interactive forms created in Word or other applications, and they do not contain interactive form fields.

Submit Form Data
April 28, 2021 02:17 AM
Creating a Submit button within a PDF form allows users to automatically submit their entered data to a specified URL or email address. You can easily create a Submit button on your forms to help users in submitting form data. If you choose to submit data to a URL, you should be aware that you will need to set up server-side programming in order to collect and route the form data. If you choose to submit data to an email address, the email body will contain the form data, and you have several options for specifying which data is included or excluded.

Stamp your signature with QuickSign
April 28, 2021 02:15 AM
The advantage of using PDF forms is the ability to receive, fill-out, and submit the form without having to deal with physical papers, and without having to send the document by post. With QuickSign you can also validate a form by adding a digital copy of your very own signature.

Show or Hide Fields
April 26, 2021 05:34 PM
There may be cases when you wish to show or hide certain fields in your PDF form; for example, if the user clicks a button, a new group of fields is displayed. You have several options to select from when showing or hiding fields: you can elect to show or hide an individual field by setting the field’s General properties, or you can write your own custom JavaScript to show and hide fields based on user action (for example, if a user hovers over a button or another). As another option, you can create a button that will show or hide specific fields when pressed.
Forms
Set Tab Order
April 26, 2021 05:32 PM
When working with form fields, users can move from field to field using the tab key on their keyboard. By default, the field tab order will be set by the order in which the fields where created. Depending on the order you added the fields, you may find cases where you need to edit the tab order to make it easier for users to navigate.

Reuse Form Field Appearance Settings
April 26, 2021 02:49 AM
Nitro Pro includes a unique tool that allows you to save the appearance properties used on a form field (such as colors, border and line style) and reuse these properties when creating future form fields. All of the ‘appearances’ you create will appear in the Properties tab.
Forms
Reset Form Data
April 26, 2021 02:47 AM
One of the most helpful buttons you can create on your PDF forms is one that permits the user to clear populated fields, also referred to as a Reset button. If you are working with a form that doesn’t contain a Reset button,Nitro Pro includes a Reset tool that allows you to quickly clear data from all of the fields in the form.
Forms
Import and Export Form Data
April 19, 2021 04:57 PM
You use Nitro Pro to export form data as a separate FDF file (form data format). An exported FDF file is much smaller than the original PDF form file, making it much more convenient for distributing to others. You can email an FDF file to another user who can then import the data into a PDF file, or you can use FDF files to save form data locally, as well as to import data into your forms.

Fill-out and save forms
April 19, 2021 03:20 AM
Nitro Pro lets you fill-out interactive PDF forms, which are designed for you to enter data into fields. To fill-out the fields of an interactive form, use the Hand Tool to click into the form fields.

Edit Align and Space Multiple Fields
April 15, 2021 02:22 AM
Nitro Pro allows you to select multiple form fields, meaning you can edit common appearance properties and fix alignment issues faster. You can edit the alignment via the Alignment context tab or context (‘right-click’) menu. To edit the appearance of multiple form fields, you can use the Properties context tab or Properties dialog.

Create Forms in a PDF
April 12, 2021 05:14 PM
Forms are one of the most common uses of PDF documents. Using form tools and JavaScript you can create dynamic, interactive documents, and create alternatives for writing complex HTML code when hosting forms on web sites. Nitro Pro includes several tools that can be used for creating PDF forms. Each tool offers a number of different settings to control form behavior and appearance.

Calculate Field Data
April 09, 2021 12:54 AM
Nitro Pro supports field calculations using several methods. The built-in calculation formulas are an easy means for creating simple, and quite restricted, field calculations. You can also use Simplified Field Notation and JavaScripts, although these methods are much more sophisticated and require some programming knowledge. If your calculation needs are limited to summing or averaging data, you can use the built-in formulas without having to worry about programming.
