When it comes to creating forms, the process used to be rather tedious simply because it required you to design the form inside InDesign and then make it usable digitally inside Acrobat Professional. With the release of InDesign CS6, many of these worries fall by the wayside. In this course, we will walk through creating each and every form element that InDesign offers.

From text entry fields to digital signatures, InDesign can now do it all. We’ll wrap things up by learning a couple ways that we can merge the old form creation workflow with InDesign CS6’s new workflow. After completing this tutorial, you’ll be familiar with the tools and techniques used to create both simple and complex forms alike within both InDesign and Acrobat Professional.
