Hello Mico Siahaan,

I am afraid that MS did some changes in Office 2007 (and 2010 later) that does not allow us to create forms the same way as it was possible with Office 2003, that is the reason why the tutorial is not updated.

We are working on ver3 of our Viewer, and for it we are planing at a bit later stage to introduce a forms designer so that you could create forms directly inside your PDF document and not need to go through third party applications like MS Office.

There are no exact dates as of when this could be available though.

Best,
Stefan

Not at this time I am afraid,

we are currenlty working on a forms designer as a Plugin for the new PDF-XChange Editor for release once complete - I am afraid I cannot offer a date for this being made available at this time.

HI

it has not been released and is still in it's infancy. I would not expect to see anything this year at best.
