    Hi All

    First if there is already a thread I am sorry.

    Ok I have some legal Documents that I need to fill out....they have to be typed or printed in Black ink. I have bad handwritting. So my question is........

    Can I scan them to my MBP and fill in the info and then print them with the filled in info? If so can someone detail how I do that? Im sorry I am not computer savvy at all :eek:

    Sure... just use the Image Capture app that comes with your Mac to scan each document in as a PDF.

    Then open the PDF in the Preview app and go to the Tools menu > Annotate > Text and click where you want the text to start then type away and command-s save when done.

    I just saved this page as a PDF and entered the test text you see there.
