Getting Started

Filling in the paper form

  1. Scan the form using the scanner program and save the image file on your computer.
  2. Run Form Pilot; go to «File | Open» at the main menu. In the Open dialog that appears, choose the file with your form image. A new document with your form image will be created in the program window.
  3. Choose the Text Field tool and create the text fields by clicking on the desired area of the form image.
  4. In the Properties panel on the right in the program window, you can change font, font size, and other text font properties.
  5. Enter text into the created text fields.
  6. Insert an original paper form in your printer, then choose the command «File | Print» . In the Print Options dialog, choose the option “Print using a pre-printed form.” In this case, only the entered text of the text field will be printed. When the option is unmarked, you can print the entire document on blank paper.
