Create a form
This document explains how to create a basic form from scratch in Acrobat DC. (For more information on PDF forms, click the appropriate link above.)
You can start with a blank PDF, add the required text and labels in the PDF, and then add form fields to complete the form.
In Acrobat, choose Tools > Prepare Form.
Choose Create New, and click Start.
Save the PDF: In the upper-left corner of Acrobat window, click the Save icon, choose the location where you want to save the file, name the file, and then click Save.
If you don't see the Create New option, update your Acrobat. To automatically update from Acrobat, choose Help > Check for updates, and then follow the instructions in the Updater window to complete the update process.
Click Add Text in the toolbar, and type wherever you want to add text or any other information in your form.
To add a logo or image in the form, choose the Add Image tool in the toolbar, select the image, click OK, and then place it at the desired location. Adjust the size or location of the image as appropriate.
Below is an example form with labels created using the Add Text and the Add Image tools.
To change existing text or images, click Edit in the toolbar. All the text and image fields are enabled for editing.
Add fields using the form field tools in the toolbar. Delete, resize, or arrange the fields as needed. To add a field:
While you’re adding fields, click Preview to see how they look. Click Edit to come back to the editing mode.
Considering the example of the Vacation Request Form, below screenshots show it in the editing mode and the preview mode.
Once you complete adding form fields, save the form.
For more information on form fields and how to set their properties, see the next section.
