Add Text Fields in PDF For Free
pdfFiller makes it easy to create and fill out or modify various types of documents while preserving their original layout. This is made possible with the help of pdfFiller’s advanced “Fillable Fields” feature. To place the necessary data into the document, open it in the editor, and press “Add Fillable Fields”. You can locate specially designated areas where the certain types of data must be entered including text, date, signature, number, image and checkbox. To add a Text field, click the Text icon, then click the document to place the field.
You can move the field around by clicking and dragging it, resize it by dragging the dots around the edges, and delete a field by clicking the trash can. All field types can be moved, resized or deleted this way.
To add more fields, simply click the icon again and repeat. To customize a field, select it, then click “Text Settings” to expand options. Field name is an easy way for you to identify the field. However, only you will see this text. The default text will appear in the field when others fill the form. It can be replaced by those completing the form unless you lock the field.
You can add hints or instructions to each field, and they will appear whenever you hold your mouse over or select that field when filling the document. Max characters and lines allow you to limit how much information can be put into any text field. Any text field can be marked as “Required” and a warning will appear to anyone filling the form if they attempt to submit it to you with an empty required field. If any of your new fields contain non-default text, you have the option to clear them or continue with text in these fields. You can rearrange the order in which users navigate the fields by clicking the Order tab and dragging the fields into the desired order. The form can be navigated when being filled by clicking the arrows above each field or pressing Tab.
When you’re done adding fillable fields, click Save at the top of the page and you can then fill or share the document.
