Using software to "type" info into forms

HELPFUL HINT: For some of us, the forms such as the 80, 47P, etc., are very tedious to fill out by hand.

I used a piece of software from Tracker Software (a Canadian firm) called PDF-XChange PDF Viewer (there is a FREE version!) to do the typing on all my forms.

It's not the prettiest typeface in the world, but it makes it SO much easier to fill in the forms, as you can save your work, and come back to it later.

1. Download the free version and install it.
2. Download the PDF version of the form you want to fill out, and save it to your hard drive or portable drive.
3. Open PDF-XChange Viewer.
4. Double-click on the screen and tell it where to find the file you saved.
5. Fill out your form and save it.

Please note: After you have saved the form the first time, and you wish to re-edit, or add information, remember to open the file with PDF-XChange Viewer, NOT with Adobe. Adobe will not let you edit the file.

However, when you have completed the form to your satisfaction and are ready to PRINT the form, open it with Adobe, and print it from there.

I hope this will help some of you out! PDF-Xchange Viewer is supported in several European languages, as well as English.
