using your printable
Simply print out your PDF and handwrite in the details or laminate and use a dry erase (whiteboard) marker to use over again if applicable.
edit your printable
If the PDF is editable, only edit it on a computer not a tablet or mobile device. When you view your PDF in Adobe Reader you will see highlighted blue fields. You can type directly into these fields to add text. These highlighted blocks will not print, only the text you add will. Only the highlighted fields are able to be changed.

save your printable
When you have added your text on any relevant pages. You can save the PDF as another name to keep those details for later or repeated use. If you do not save your printable all text you have added will be lost. I recommend saving your file after a few edits, closing it and reopening the new file to check all text has saved correctly before adding all of your text.
change the text
If you wish to change the properties of the text you type into the form fields, press Command E (mac) or Control E (PC). This will access the “Form Field Text Properties” panel where you can change the following:
correct print settings
For printables that have a design element that goes right to the edge of the page. If your printer has the option for borderless printing, select this option. If not, you will get a small white margin around the edge of the printable.
