Creating Adaptive Forms from Acroforms

Organizations have a wide variety of forms. Some of these forms are created in Microsoft Word and converted into PDF. These forms by default are not fillable using Adobe Reader or Acrobat. To make these forms fillable using Acrobat or Reader, we need to convert these forms into Acroform. Acroforms are forms created using Acrobat. This article walks through creating an Adaptive Form from Acroform and merging the data back into Acroform to get the PDF. The PDF with the merged data can also be sent for signing using Adobe Sign.
If you are using AEM Forms 6.5, Please use the Automated Forms Conversion capability.
