    I have Acrobat Pro 9. Is there some way I can open Acrobat forms that I've downloaded from other businesses (bank applications, insurance forms etc) so I can fill them out with the computer instead of handwriting them ??? I've searched but could not find much on the subject.

    Thanks

    You have not stated a problem. Of course you can open and fill-in PDF forms in Acrobat 9 Pro unless there is some reason that you cannot. Do you have a problem? If you do, then what is your problem?

    If the documents were published as fill able forms, then yes. If they are locked by the publisher you can turn it into a fill able form but that takes some time. My health care people do this to me. They offer downloadable forms but I have to fill them in by hand.

    If there is no security set, you should be able to use typewriter tool to fill out form.

    The Preview app can do that too, technically.

    If the use case is that you download a form, print it out, then fill in by hand, then yes, you can use Acrobat Pro. In Acrobat 9, it's called Typewriter tool, and you can type anywhere on the page. In Acrobat X, it's View-Tools-Content-Add or Edit Text. Save as, print, and fax!
