What do you use to fill out PDF Forms?

As the title says, I’m looking for suggestions on a decent PDF Editor.

LibreOffice Draw. It is a bit buggy but it can edit everything in a PDF.


You don’t need an editor to fill forms usually.

I think last time I needed to fill a pdf form I used Okular.

Just pulled the libreoffice suite from AUR, Draw is awesome, a literal godsend for everything I’m trying to do.

Will definitely check this out.

It is in the repos. https://archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/libreoffice-fresh/
Just in case, save your documents frequently because I had Draw hang, enter a save loop or fail to save when doing simple stuff, like drawing :rofl:

Okular has been hit or miss for me. I was able to use Firefox the last time I needed to fill in a pdf form.

I have to use a fully-functional, well-featured pdf editor in my law practice. I’ve used MasterPDFEditor for years. It has been a life saver for me in filling out government forms. Although it uses a proprietary license, they have a native version for Linux, and I happily pay for a multi-machine annual license. Their licensing fees are very reasonable (IMHO) for a professional grade product.

Edit: added note re: proprietary license
