Editing LAA Forms

Post by braywood » Wed Aug 07, 2019 10:15 am

I've downloaded several forms from the site and am having trouble saving my work. I can't seem to get around the protection on the .pdf file. I want to be able to share and edit my mod with a friend so we can be sure it is correct.
I save my work, but when reopened, it is not complete.
What am I missing??

Hi Mark,

Which form are you trying to edit and what program were you using to do so? Most .pdf downloads are not meant to be edited.

Most home PCs come with Adobe reader only which means you can open PDF files but not write to them.
At work we have Adobe Acrobat DC which allow forms to be completed and saved but you have to buy that particular version (unlikely to be cheap...).

I have often wondered why the LAA forms aren't in MS Word format which would allow them to be completed and saved.
