I am able to create forms with fields and other controls by using the
developer tab, which I had to enable in Word options. I am able to create
these forms then use the restrict editing feature to make them fillable
only. When I go to save as PDF, however, the fields are not retained. Is
it possible to create fillable PDF forms in Word and, if so, could someone
please explain? I understand that Adobe Pro could also be used to do this
but if we can do it from Word this would be better. Thanks!
