I usually reformat the form and send it back to them as a *.docx, just as a courtesy, you understand. Not because I'm OCD.

Thank you all again, but you are answering the wrong question, unless the best answer is Acrobat (which it might be).
That is my fault for asking it badly in the first place.

The question is not of how to fill in the form, but of how best to create a better form, and what format to distribute it in.


Is part of the job description to improve their communication? If not, it might not be the ice breaker you're after, assuming you want the job.

They mentioned good IT skills, but I've already given up on the job: didn't meet some of their essential requirements.
Plus I don't want it on false pretences: best they know what kind of trouble I am before they hire me.

writeable pdf

That was my thought also. Is Acrobat the only/best option for that?
