PDF fillable forms are great for gathering information, especially if you’re not sure whether respondents will be completing your form on their computers or by hand. Even better, it’s almost just as easy to create a fillable form as a static PDF if you’ve got the right tools. PDF Form Filler 3.3 for Mac can be downloaded from our software library for free. The file size of the latest downloadable installation package is 1.8 MB. This software works fine with Mac OS X 10.6 or later. This Mac download was checked by our built-in antivirus and was rated as virus free.

  • This feature is not available in Adobe Reader. You must have Acrobat 9 Pro, Pro Extended, or Standard, Acrobat 8 Professional, or Acrobat 3D Version 8.
  • If you are editing the form, click Close Form Editing in the upper-right corner of the form.
  • Make sure that the security settings allow form filling. (See File > Properties > Security.)
  • Make sure that the PDF/A standard was not used to create the file. (Check for the Standards panel button  in the Navigation pane.) If PDF/A was used, re-create the PDF without the PDF/A setting to allow reader-enabling.

  • Reader users must have Reader 8 or later.
  • When you choose the Reader-enabling option, save a copy of the form using a different filename, and then send the copy to recipients.

If you’re having trouble filling in and submitting forms, check the following conditions:

  • Make sure that the security settings allow form filling. (See File > Properties > Security.)
  • Make sure that the PDF includes interactive, or fillable, form fields. Sometimes form creators forget to convert their PDFs to interactive forms, or they intentionally design a form you can only fill in by hand. If you can’t type in the form fields, then the fields are probably not interactive.
  • Check for additional capabilities and restrictions in the purple document message bar, just below the tool area.

Additional forms tips for Acrobat users

  • If the form doesn’t have interactive form fields, open the form in Acrobat 9 (any version) and choose Forms > Add Or Edit Fields. Check if this message appears: “Currently there are no form fields on this PDF. Do you want Acrobat to detect the form fields for you?”. You can click Yes to run the Form Field Recognition tool, or use the Typewriter tool to create form fields.
  • If the message “This operation is not permitted” appears when users open or submit your form, check for unembedded fonts or hidden objects. Also, make sure that fonts are embedded in any PDF before you import it as artwork in the form. To check for unembedded fonts, choose File > Properties > Font tab. To embed fonts, choose Tools > Advanced Editing > TouchUp Text Tool. To locate and remove content you don’t want, choose Document > Examine Document in Acrobat. For more information, see the forum post Operation not permitted.
  • If you have checked all these conditions and still can’t fill out and submit the form, post your question on the Acrobat forum.
  • If the form doesn’t have interactive form fields, you can ask the form creator to place form fields on the document. Or, you can download a free trial of Acrobat 9 (Windows only). In Acrobat, you can use either the Typewriter tool or Form Field Recognition tool to create form fields.
  • If the form creator enabled additional capabilities, then the Document Extensions panel (View > Navigation Panels > Document Extensions) is available. You can open the panel to see what else you can do with the form. For example, you might be able to save and print data, add comments, and digitally sign it.
