Hello @phil@energybroker.ie,

Thank you for reaching out to us through our Community Forums!

At the moment, our software does not have an automatic form creation tool. However, you can use the Forms tab in Nitro Pro to add a Text Field or other types of Form fields to the document.

The following KB Articles go over the Form tab options:
a. Creating and Editing Form Fields: http://kb.gonitro.com/knowledgebase#/search/forms/000001624
b. Form Tools Summary: http://kb.gonitro.com/knowledgebase#/search/form/000002192

To edit the Form Fields, you must first use the "Select Fields" option under the Forms tab. Once you've chosen that option, you can right-click and edit the form field's properties or use it to move or re-size the form field.

Thanks for choosing Nitro Pro and I hope this helps!

Hello @phil@energybroker.ie,

Thank you for reaching out to us through our Community Forums!

For importing and exporting form data (FDF), kindly refer to this article: http://kb.gonitro.com/knowledgebase#/search/fdf/000001586

With regards to more detailed information about form fields, could you please be more specific with what you would like to achieve?

Thank you very much in advance and I am looking forward to hearing back from you.

Thanks AllainU, my work requires that I fill out up to 100 PDF customer agreement forms per month. The info on each is unique and is stored on a zoho creator database. I can export from the database in various forms. I am looking for a way to upload the database information into the PDFs rather than having to manually type the information out. I reckon it would save me 15 hours a month. Any help greatly appreciated. Phil

While we cannot guarantee each feature request submitted will be granted, rest assured our development team will be notified through above website and all updates will be available on this page: https://www.gonitro.com/nps/product-details/downloads

Please check for updates on page above from time to time.

Thanks for choosing Nitro Pro and I hope this helps!
