View Full Version : PDF Viewer with editable fields? [Resolved]

May 30th, 2007, 08:36 PM
I am currently using evince for viewing PDFs. It allows for me to view the document (which in my case is a tax form) but not to change and save the form fields. I am having to switch back to Windows for this feature. Any Linux PDF viewers support this? I am trying to cut the Windows umbilical cord.

I think pdfedit is what you are looking for

That is something that you can do with Acrobat Reader in Windows, right? If so, try the Linux version of Acrobat reader. Here is part of the description of it (acroread) from Adept in Kubuntu:

Adobe Acrobat Reader: Portable Document Format file viewer
Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing and printing Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files.
If you need to complete fillable forms, you will need to install the acroread-plugins package.

I think with acroread and the plugins package, you'll be all set.

I got both. I only needed the Linux version of Acrobat Reader, thanks. PDF Edit is slick but more sophisticated than I needed. Thanks just the same.
