I have a client who ask me if I knew anything about creating a Fillable Word Doc.
I suggested "Filemaker" ?? And they said "Sure, send the form" and "Now does this mean that all of our client have to have a copy of Filemaker" ??
So, my questions is this.
I'm I asking for trouble doing it within Filemaker or just find a plug in and make some suggestions.
Reading the issues with PC's not being able to edit pdf's and is this issue with mac as well. And then with me, if "A" form comes back, how can I get this new data back into Filemaker without the aide of a plug-in's ( Is this Possible ?? )
If I create a pdf within their current FM solution and my client emails to their client, then I'm thinking … let the client use their PDF editor to fill in the blanks ?? Most people I've meet can not handle their pdf editor nor can the editor really add the text properly without extensive nudging UP / DWN LEFT / RIGHT … then email the filled in pdf back to my client where they would import this pdf document back into the solution. Not sure how to do this … if possible ?
Is Adobe and options ??
I would like to avoid plug-ins due to the organization low budget and would like to create an option through Filemaker if at all possible that would work on both Mac's and PC's
They are local, working out of a room in the organizers house and really on donations.
Anyway; any insight, suggestion, advise I would be grateful.
