filling out pdf forms in preview

Hi there,

It's Joseph. Does anyone know how i can fill out pdf forms using preview on MacOS 10.12.3? I've got a form to fill out for my college's testing center, but I'm just not sure what steps I need to take in order to fill out the form?

Use windows

I'm sorry to say that the title of this post says it all. You might have a chance of trying the the Adobe mac app, but you are much much better off to just do it with windows. You can't use preview.

Adobe Reader on Windows

As the previous poster said, you're most likely going to have to use Windows. As great as the Mac OS and VoiceOver are, this is one of the shortcomings. You can also write to Apple's accessibility team and ask them to implement proper tagged PDF support intoPreview. However, Apple has had years and years to do this. I don't know if it's just not a priority for them, but I'm sad to see that VoiceOver on macOS is steadily declining. It's clear to me that iOS is Apple's future. Still, maybe something will get done if enough people send feedback to Apple.


That's odd. because I heard that you *could* use preview to fill out forms as long as they were tagged properly.

You cannot fill out forms in

You cannot fill out forms in preview. I recommend getting adobe reader for mac os. You can fill out the form there. Now if they did not make the form accessible that's for you to email the university about.
