Customer Question
I am trying to...

I am trying to fill out a form sent to me as a pdf. . Have installed Chrome Hub thing and opened doc with it. Still can't type within the form.

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your router?

Rogers Do you need actual cheap Chinese manufacturer?

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

Since trying Hub, just clicking on the pen and trying to type in doc. Tried opening with Explorer already, but this time they just offer more apps. They did allow editing a doc. (not pdf) yesterday.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Network Expert to know before I connect you?

I think that's all the relevant info. Maybe they need to know that I'm old and slow and not particularly tech savvy.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm glad to help out.

To fill out a form in a PDF, the PDF must have been created with an interactive form. Would you mind attaching the PDF here so I can take a look to see if it's actually possible to fill in that form? If not, I can show you an alternate way to add text to it.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
