Introduction to Adobe Designer 7.0
Adobe Products (of Adobe Acrobat fame) has created a program by which individuals can create fillable or dynamic forms. As with all Adobe products, forms created in Designer have the ability to be read on any computer which has the Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat on it. Adobe Designer is a relatively simple program to learn the basics of. However, the amount of time it takes to create a form depends on how much time you have and are willing to spend. If you keep it simple, however, the basic functions of Adobe Designer are easy to grasp.
