The PageForm Plug-in for Adobe PageMaker running under Windows allows you to create forms within PageMaker that contain text fields, check boxes, radio buttons and other types of controls typically found within PDF on-line forms.
PageForm allows you to take advantage of PageMaker's page layout and design capabilities to create interactive forms and documents in a single step. Using PageForm you can create complete, sophisticated, interactive designs within PageMaker. You can review, test and amend those designs in real-time in one application so dramatically reducing the cycle time necessary to create sophisticated navigable PDF documents.
Forms created using PageForm can be converted to PDF format for electronic distribution and filling in on-line and printing. You can also print these forms for filling-in manually on paper should you so wish.
Form controls are selected and dragged from the PageForm floating palette to the position in which they should be placed within the PageMaker publication.
If you are familiar with Acrobat forms a very familiar looking interface is then presented to you. The similarity between these two interfaces greatly reduces the learning curve required to learn PageForm for those users who are already familiar with using Acrobat forms. It also makes it very easy to move between Acrobat and PageForm.
PageMaker files that contain PageForm information can be distributed, and PDFs can be created including forms output by PageForm, without the need to have the PageForm plug-in installed.
