FyTek's PDF File Save bundled with PDF Meld allows users of the free version of Adobe Reader to fill in and save their fillable PDFs.
PDF File Save, while still free, is now part of PDF Meld.
The download link below is for Windows.
Other operating systems such as Mac and graphical Linux are also available for download.
The original version of PDF File Save is still available below.
1 Start PDF Meld and click the "Insert" button as shown above.
Select the PDF you wish to fill from the dialog box.
2 Your PDF should be displayed in the left panel.
Click the "Fill" button near the bottom to start the process.
3 This dialog box should now appear and your PDF will open in Adobe Reader.
4 The first page of your PDF will contain the instructions.
Skip down to page 2 and fill out the fields of your PDF.
5 The last page of your PDF will contain a "Save As" and "Reset" button.
Click "Save As" to start the save process or "Reset" to reset the form fields back to their original values.
6 A dialog box similar to this will show when you click the "Save As" button.
This is to alert you that you are about to send data to your local machine.
To keep the message from showing all the time, check the box "Remember my action for this site".
7 Save both a PDF and FDF version of your saved data.
The FDF is a text version of your form fields that can be used in the event there are any issues saving your PDF.
Simply open the FDF file in the same way you open PDF file to access your typed in information.
You may now close the PDF containing the "Save As" button in Reader.
Note you do not need to purchase a copy of PDF Meld to use these form fill capabilities.
Simply use the demo version of PDF Meld to save your fillable PDFs.
The older version of PDF File Save is still available below if you wish to download it.
