    I got sent a PDF form to fill out. For some reason I cannot type on the form. Is there a way or a setting that allows me to type on a PDF form that has been sent via e-mail?

    Are you using Adobe Reader or Apple's Preview?

    Assuming you are using Adobe Reader, all you need to do is select the "type" tool (It looks like a vertical I-bar). Next select any areas that allow inputed text.

    If that doesn't work it could be a compatibility problem with the way the PDF file was originally saved.

    If this is the case and it dosen't work, check your Adobe version, this is a somewhat new feature to Adobe Reader.

    And if you are using Reader, make sure you print the form after filling it out, because you CANT save the info you entered :(
