From Indesign to Inbox: Form creation and Distribution

Lesson Plan Published 9/21/15 Last updated on 3/2/20

The Indesign to Inbox professional development session takes us on a tour through the design and creation process of interactive and fillable PDF forms with Indesign CC. After design and creation we go to Acrobat DC where we discover how easy it is to distribute, collect and manage your forms.

This session plan is accompanied by three handouts.

  1. A compact workflow overview with links to additional information online. Your guide on the side.
  2. A textbook that is a compilation of excerpts from Adobe's official reference guides about the features and functions covered during this session.
  3. The third is a great handbook on digital design. Pixel perfect precision was created by a collective called UsTwo. It covers web design principles and offers some great tips. A must read for print designers who take their first steps in the digital domain.
