Pdf-Office Professional is a sleek program that allows users to create interactive PDF forms. Although it seems simple, getting the program to create decent-looking forms was harder than we expected.

The program's interface is clean and uncluttered, with its features neatly organized in toolbars. The main toolbar allows users to quickly switch between the text editor tool, image tool, drawing tool, text box tool, and form tool. Most of these are fairly self-explanatory, with the exception of the form tool. And that's unfortunate, since it's the whole point of the program. The form tool seems as if it's going to be intuitive, especially once you read the quick guide; you simply select the type of field you want and drag and drop it wherever you like in the document. The size of each element is determined by the size of the area in which the user drags it. It's very flexible, which is both a blessing and a curse. While it's nice to be able to tweak elements endlessly, we ended up being frustrated by how difficult it was to create a neat, professional-looking form. Aligning the form elements was a matter of adjusting values on X and Y axes, while creating elements of a uniform size meant numerically adjusting the height and width of each element. We also found the built-in Help file to be a bit brief and, well, unhelpful.

Pdf-Office Professional is free to try. It comes as a ZIP file and although it installs politely, it leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program with reservations; it's not awful, but it will take some practice and patience to be able to use it effectively.

Developer's Description

pdf-Office Professional is a progressive software solution to create PDF forms and documents. It has all the form functions that Adobe's free Acrobat Reader can work with. Interactive forms can be created intuitively, filled out electronically by the user at the PC, and then printed - with all the advantages that the PDF format can provide. Forms can be displayed and worked on the same way on any workstation without the user being able to tamper with the original. A high level of document security enabled by 128-bit encryption ensures maximum data protection where needed. From simple text boxes to calculated fields to complex programming features in PDF forms, pdf-Office Professional provides everything necessary from the first steps to the creation of highly professional PDF forms. This is not least ensured by an intuitive form editor that allows simple graphic representation of the form fields and text from scratch, as with MS Word. Once created, documents can later be edited or added to in pdf-Office Professional at any time.
