Adding Fields to PDF Documents


Anybody who has done large volumes of document automation with be familiar with PDF forms and embedded fields. While embedded fields are very useful, sometimes they’re a little inconvenient. Let me explain… you get a PDF without fields from a third party, you decide to add form fields yourself using Adobe Acrobat or some other PDF editing tool. So far, so good. But then you get a new version of the PDF and you need to start the process again.

With Inforama’s Annotation Designer you can overlay an uploaded PDF with fields that are stored in an external file. This has the advantage that the fields will remain in place when you upload new versions of the PDF.

This approach also means that you don’t need to use proprietary PDF editing tools to create fields, all you need to do is to upload your file in the browser.
