With the rise of the internet use especially during this time (thanks COVID-19), come a lot of challenges too. This post on how to open fill editable PDF is probably the most asked question I get everyday and for a good reason! Heck, I am even learning how to use Zoom, did you know you could give access to the mouse so the students have control of it to show you if they know the answer? (more on that later).
Today, I’ll be sharing this tutorial on editable PDFs along with a blog hop with some of my teacher buddies who have tutorials on Boom Cards, Google Slides and more!
How to open and fill an editable PDF
Firstly, you will need to download the document to your PC. To do this, you will need to click on the link given to you by email, on the desktop etc. It might be hosted on Google Drive, Dropbox or even on a USB device. The important thing here, is that you will need to download it to your PC. Here’s a screenshot. When you click on that little arrow on the far right, you will get a drop down with two options ‘direct download’ and ‘save to my dropbox’ for now, choose direct download.

The second step is to respond to the dialogue box at the bottom where it gives an option to open, save or cancel. Choose save this time and then if you don’t choose a location, it will go to your ‘downloads’ folder on your PC or MAC.
The third step is to ‘open file location’ then choose the file you just downloaded and right click on it.
Click on ‘open with Adobe Reader DC’.
If you do not have Adobe Reader DC, then you will need to download it here and it’s completely FREE.
Once you’ve opened the file, the editable boxes will automatically fill and you’re ready to go! Editable files are so easy to work with and they are an important tool to have for use at home and in the classroom. Think name activities, personalised rewards etc.
