Setting Up a Dynamic Form
First, open Adobe Designer. The first window will give you several options:
- Quick Start Tutorial
- Explore Sample Forms
- What’s New
- New from Template
- Open Form
Choose the “New from Template” option.
The next screen will ask you which method you would like for creating a new form.
There are 4 ways to create a new file. If you are creating a never-before seen form, choose either “New Blank Form” or “Based on a Template.” If you already have a form created in a Word or PDF format, and you simply want to update and professionalize your form, you may want to consider “Import a PDF Document” or “Import a Word Document.” For the purposes of this tutorial, the “New Blank Form” will be used.
The next page asks you to create the overall structure of the form. Do you want the form oriented as a portrait or landscape? How many pages do you want the form? This is the page to decide that.
