Adobe Reader question

I'm trying to fill out a college application and I'm wondering if I can type into the boxes instead of printing the form and filling it out by hand. The reason I ask is because it says "Print or Type" above the first boxes to fill out. I downloaded it and tried to find a way to type but got nowhere.

Here's a link to the file: http://www.sandiego.edu/ugadmiss/USD_app_05.pdf

Thanks

To the best of my knowledge, I've never seen a pdf file that allowed input.

I believe when it says 'type' it actually means for you to type it in a typewriter. But you may have to go to a museum to find one.

BTW - off the subject but Adobe Reader has become nothing but bloatware. Started simple now takes too long to load, and it will only get worse.

as an alternative to the typewriter, if you've photoshop, you can open this file (one page at a time...) and just create a new layer and use the type tool.

but realistically, a typewriter (or printing by hand) would be a lot quicker!

craven...
IIRC, there are "fill-in" pdf forms available that allow text input. the IRS has some on their website. the only problem is that if you only have Adobe Reader and not the full version Acrobat, you won't be able to save any of the text you type in...

Thanks guys. Yeah I was going to type it simply for speed and cleanliness. Looks like I'll be resorting to pen and scratching out here and here

If you have Adobe Acrobat instead of Adobe Acrobat Reader then you will be able to input.

Acrobat Reader does not allow editing, its basically the light version of Acrobat, whichs' whole purpouse is pdf editing.

Or if the college was kind enough to make it a "fillable" PDF.

Acrobat Forms have the FDF file extension. If it is PDF, the fields are not fillable.

I haven't seen many places use FDF because it requires back-end processing to acutally use the data without re-keying.
