Part 3: Why Should You Convert PDF to Fillable Form

When PDF or Portable document format files or documents are saved in this format, it is difficult to share them easily and open them on several computer platforms. If you use a PDF file rather than a Word document or some other file type, you will get to preserve certain features such as the graphics, fonts and other formatting. But, you might want to change some PDFs such as the forms that you have created to allow users to fill in certain information or data on their personal computers. Some PDF files have forms which are encrypted from pasting, printing and copying, including important tax bill, invoice and contracts. This means that you are not able to edit or print them on paper in order to fill in certain information. Furthermore, some PDF forms are scanned files that will not allow you to add information from any computer.
