FormMate for Mac1.8.1

12 January 2011

Fill out PDF forms.

What is FormMate for Mac

FormMate enables you to fill out pdf files on your computer. It is a very simple process to open up a pdf, add text data to the pdf, add any image files that you need (an image of your signature, a check mark...), and print, fax, or save the filled in pdf to disk.

Some key features of FormMate include:

  • FormMate "references" the pdf. It does not modify the pdf in any way.
  • QuickCells allows the user to define commonly used text and images, and quickly add them to documents.
  • You can include the pdf in the file (for portability to other computers), or reference the pdf, to save space.
  • You have unlimited scaling capabilities, for precise alignment of your inputs.
  • Tools are included for layout and alignment of your data.
  • You can readily see where all of the data that you have added to the pdf.
  • FormMate automatically checks for updates at startup (you can disable this feature if you wish), and can automatically the newer version if one is found. This keeps you up-to-date with the latest version.
  • FormMate is very inexpensive ($29.95) for what you get.

You are welcome to download an unlicensed version to try it out. The unlicensed version has the full functionality of the licensed version, but does place a watermark over the document.  This watermark disappears once you purchase and register FormMate (by simply entering a valid registration key).

I've been using this app for probably 10 years now. Works great, makes it so easy to add text and signatures to a pdf. Great for forms and applications. Never had a crash or any problems at all.

I find Formmate to be exactly what a utility is supposed to be: a big help in getting a specific job done. I don't own or use Acrobat or Photoshop. This far less expensive utility gives me a capability I really value: the capacity to fill out and send PDF forms easily. Anyone who complains that it doesn't work, or doesn't do what it advertises, must not have taken the few minutes needed to understand how it works. It has great shortcuts and time-saving techniques. Since I receive my faxes through a service that sends them to my email inbox I can just open the arriving file, "print" it to PDF, open it in Formmate, add whatever is needed, including my signature, save it as a PDF and then send it out from my Mac. In other words, there is no paper needed and I can send a professional-looking, completed form very quickly.

This seems to be well designed software that does what it claims to do. I think it would be great for people who have to fill out a lot of forms, and who do not own Photoshop. If you do own Photoshop, it is hard to justify the cost of this product. Since I rarely fill out forms, and I already own Photoshop, it just doesn't make sense for me to spend so much money on an application I'll rarely use. However, I would consider buying it if it were half the price. Being able to add a signature image is a great feature - but I would urge the developer to offer password protection for this. You don't want just anyone to be able to sign your documents!

This application (with OSX 10.3.8) has done averything claimed very well. It has saved me the tme and trouble of printing outforms, then manually filling out, and signing them before faxing them back. A small cropped, scanned in signiture file can easily substitute for a hand written signature, by the way.

The problem with the serial code was resolved by this company pretty much straight away when I complained. I have not looked back since and I have found this little program to be very handy and easy to use. Worth the money.

I purchased this (stupidly). They sent me a registration code that does not work. Don't buy it.
