Form Help for Adobe Acrobat Reader

Setup

To use these forms, you should have the latest version of the Adobe Acrobat Reader, version 5 or later, available from Adobe Acrobat Reader. You also need to set up the Acrobat Reader to properly highlight (put a box around) the current entry blank (field) you are working on. To set up the Acrobat Reader, you need to directly open the Acrobat Reader from your desktop (not through a browser) and choose the Edit menu, the Preferences item, and then the General... item. Select the Forms item from the list on the left, check the Highlight Form Fields check box, click on your preferred color (for example, Blue), and choose the OK button. From now on, this facility will work correctly on all Acrobat forms.
