Interactive PDF forms
InDesign CS6's new PDF form creation tools are designed to eliminate the need to shuttle back and forth between InDesign (for setting the look-and-feel of the form) and Acrobat Pro (for adding the form's interactive elements). Now, without leaving InDesign, you can add form objects of various kinds, some of them customisable, with accoutrements such as tooltips and PDF actions — printing or emailing the form, for example. You can also set the tab order of the fields, to make filling in the form as logical and painless as possible.
The PDF form shown above includes text fields, a drop-down box, radio buttons and an action button — all designed in and exported from InDesign CS6.
