Why study this course

In this course,you'll learn how to build forms and gather data by creating electronic fillable PDF forms using Acrobat. This will help to make completing forms and collecting form data easier for everyone involved. We'll cover the basic principles of form design as well as the available features within Acrobat. We'll start with a blank form and add form fields, field properties, apply form security, and shortcuts when adding form fields.
