I would like to help you, please let me know when you are ready
I am ready.
there is a way to do it online
since you said you rarely have to fill out forms,
it will be the best option
what is your browser?
this is the site you will need to use
what you need to do is
1) upload the pdf file2) edit (fill out the form)
The form may take a few weeks to complete and the sections may need to be expanded as the text will not fit into the size of sections as they are. Will this be a problem?
no, you can still do it online
Brilliant! OK - I will try that. What's the catch?
you can read the features here
service is free, they just Show advertisements on the website
after filling out your form, you will be able to1) download your form to your computer or...2) email it directly from the website
there is an alternative service:
I see - thanks. You've been very helpful. I will try.
these two services are online. you don't install anything. i want to recommend a software program that you can install on your computer
you can download it from the page above
it is free
OK - that might suit me better. I'll have a look at that too.
yes, since it will be installed on your computer, you will be able to Access it directly from your computer instead of going to the websites and uploading the forms
Great - thanks.
you are welcome
I have tried a couple of the above - none seem to increase the size of the text box on the forms - am I missing something? I downloaded foxit - which does not seem to want to accept all PDF documents. I haven't found a solution which has worked for me yet.
can you try
Instead of foxit?
It doesn't seem so.
can you download adobe pro
and install. you will be able to use it for 30 days.
can you check if you are able to increase the size of the textbox.
Yes, I am able to increase the size of the text box with the free trial - which I already knew about before contacting you, but I didn't want to subscribe as I knew it would cost more than it was worth me paying / more than I could afford.
Foxit responded to my query about expanding the box - they said that it wasn't possible with the free version. So, it seems that the answer to my original question is actually 'no, it there is no free / cheap way of filling out forms with the option of expanding existing text box'.
