Graphicool1 Hi thanks for that! so in my understanding with this program, i may of just paid for it and now regret what i have just done very much, All i want to do is to be able to fill an application form in so its basic text, BUT this program tells me from Column 49 on the PDF manual that i can ONLY do this in blocks? as in like using a sniping tool in a manor? how terrible is that when the program is so good & they have overlooked the basic elements of filling in an application form?

Thanks

Are you sure you can't just type in the boxes on the application form? Have you tried to type into any of the boxes?

If they are expecting a form to be completed and emailed back, you won't have been expected to be buying software to do this.

Good luck

If the application form is designed to be completed on line, then you should be able to just type in it, using only your browser.

I can't comment on Foxit as I've never used it. Sorry not to be of more help

Can you post a link to the, or similar, site so I, or someone, can try to work it out? I'm not suggesting you send the link of the job you are after though ;)

Could this be the sort of thing you are looking for- Convert PDF to Word format and the you can simply (after adding your text) re-convert it back to PDF

Not sure if this helps but look at the last post here .

If you print it then print to XPS viewer as you won't be able to save it. Once "printed" in XPS then you can send it as a document.
