Is there software that can fill PDF forms?


I have some PDFs which are actually forms, with fields to fill. Is there some software that can fill those fields?

Xournal will allow you to draw/write anything on top layer of any PDF document and then export it back to PDF.

To install it from the terminal, use the following command:

sudo apt-get install xournal

Document Viewer (Evince) SHOULD be able to fill in forms, IF the document is a fillable form. Not all documents are fillable! If document does not support form filling the form, you should use tools like PDFedit or OpenOffice Draw

Then just draw a box and type.

As you will have realised, many PDF forms are not editable by Adobe Reader. The traditional way of filling in these non-fillable PDF forms is to print them off and then fill them in by hand. Painstaking and time-consuming, I'm sure you'll agree, and the result is never as good as you'd like.

This is the third post in my programmatic PDF series. In this post, I will show how to fill out a PDF form in Android using the iTextG library.

For an Android App, this allows you or the users of your app to collect information from your device instead of a PC. A PDF form contains standard input text fields such as:
