I just installed this and cannot figure out how to overwrite text on my PDF form?? The little drop down box shows how to add text boxes, write on the document, etc. Yet, I cannot find any information on basic form filling. Can someone please help?? This is driving me crazy!

It'd be helpful if MacUpdate allowed attachments,so you'd be able to let me actually see what you are trying to do,Julie.

This software was obscure and hard to locate. The usual search tags of annotate pdf etc. did not bring this up. Developer may want to revise the description. An MU search for edit pdf and then clicking thru results brought this little gem of a software up. Am very happy it did.

FormulatePRO does exactly what is needed to fill in the forms - such a government or other formal / paper based interafaces that we all need to do, thankfully only once in a while.

FormulatePRO can do with a little UI work or at a minimum a tutorial on YouTube - but does what is needed - add text (like filling up a form), affix signature, add an image to the form, annotate.

If it is missing a key feature - it is the ability to highlight in different colors.
An ability to strike though would also be valuable.
An ability to change the check mark - to a tick mark rather an X mark would also be helpful.

Overall, this is VERY useful and purposeful software. Thanks to the dev for making it available to all. Best.

The best feature is missing from the description: You can place an image on top of the pdf as well as text. This mean you can scan in your signature or other drawings of interest.

The Export PDF function seems broken, but instructions are given for the standard OS X way so it's certainly possible,

How do you "replace text" with this software?? I can't figure out how to simply fill out the form and it's driving me crazy! The drop down menus show how to create text boxes, etc. but not replacing text. Nothing happens when i hover over the existing text. What am I doing wrong?

Background is printing in black and text is white, just the opposite of what it should be and what is showing on the screen.

I frequently need to fill in forms/documents that I download from the internet on my Mac (running Lion). This formulate pro is perfect, and is free. Very useful, and I would recommend to anyone. Thanks, Bill

This is the best utility I have found for filling out paper forms with a Mac. Just scan the paper using Image Capture/Preview, then save the jpeg image as a pdf, and open the pdf in FormulatePro and add text fields. You may have to play with the paper size. In order to fill a 7 in. x 3.5 in. card, I had to create a custom paper size that was 3.5 in x 7 in. (i.e., rotated), and then print from formulate in _landscape_ orientation. Othewise, however, very simple to use.

This program was exactly what I was looking for!!
Im taking a class where the professor emails us PDFs that we are supposed to print out and take notes on, only problem with that is we cover about 50 pages a day and I was not about to print that much! With this I can just type over the blanks with no need to print, so much better (and easier) than Preview! And the price is unbeatable!
Thanks!!!
