Does anyone out there have experience of creating PDF poster templates that can subsequently be customised in Acrobat Reader for a specific event by a non-creative user?

I've seen this done on a lot of charity sites where campaign groups need to use national branding, but allow the groups to print them locally.

I have Adobe Design Premium CS3 to do the setup. Any advice would be appreciated!

Acrobat Reader is just as the title suggests. It can not edit files.

Reader can Add text to forms created in Professional if it is set up correctly, and you can add a bunch of parameters. You just can't save it, but you can print it.

You can use form recognition or create your own form shapes for input. Reader will have now problem with adding text to it.
