Form fill in Adobe 5.0

by maxwell edison In reply to Form fill in Adobe 5.0

Adobe Acrobat Approval 5.0 is a cost-effective solution that enables organisations to expedite forms processes and reduce the cost of managing paper-based forms. The software allows workgroups to quickly fill in, save, and approve electronic forms created in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). An electronic forms system combines Acrobat Approval 5.0 and Adobe Acrobat 5.0, the creation tool for interactive Adobe PDF forms. With Acrobat Approval 5.0, workgroup members can easily submit forms from within Web browsers and save a copy on their desktop computers. Or, for forms requiring more time to complete, users can save the files to their desktops, fill them out offline, and submit them later. The integrated spell-checking feature quickly catches misspelled words and ensures the integrity of field data. Acrobat Approval 5.0 further accelerates forms approval by allowing users to easily apply digital signatures.
