Designing PDF Forms with Adobe InDesign.

Special Note: We are running this workshop again, due to popular demand.

Designing PDF Forms in Adobe InDesign.

InDesign-Acrobat-Forms.pngWith a little bit of work, you can create a PDF form that virtually anyone can fill in and save electronically. You can track your forms and see when they've been completed. Clients are starting to ask for PDF Forms as for all sorts of creative and unique solutions. This workshop digs into how to build and manage PDF forms -- with an extra focus on what you can do in InDesign to make building those forms easier.

Note: You'll also be able to download a detailed 8-page PDF with step-by-step details and tips on creating effective PDF Forms.

These workshops are demonstrated using InDesign CS4 and Acrobat 9 Professional on Mac OS X, however the learning applies to PC users as well as previous versions of Acrobat and InDesign.

Participate via the Web or In-Person in Seattle:

Our new workshop/webcast format combines a live Seattle workshop with a simultaneous online webcast.

How it works: A live audience of designers participate from our training room in Seattle. Web attendees participate at the same time through an easy webinar connection. Web participants type questions using the webinar interface -- and the instructor answers live, just as he answers anyone in the room attending in person. This short introductory video recorded at an earlier webinar describes the experience:
