Kathleen,

You are right; Open Office creates one of those PDF forms
that you can only fill out and print, but not save. I've
never needed anything else, so I don't know if there's an
option for creating a savable form in Open Office, but I'd
bet there isn't.

I noticed that you can't save the Open Office form, Richard.

I haven't used Nitro PDF yet, but they have had a special, $49, and
their claims imply they match Acrobat Pro capabilities.

Leonard,

You might want to try Open Office. Here is a blog entry that
describes how you can make forms with Open Office. I have only
done this a couple of times, but it seems to work ok.
