When I saw your post I was hoping you'd provide some tips on how to do something I've been wondering about for some time. Mainly, what are the best methods to scan a form in and then be able to mark the user-fill-outable areas so that I can then fill out the form electronically? I'm wondering about both free and proprietary solutions, on Linux or Windows. Any ideas?

    I wanted to edit my PDFs too, and instead of buying expensive Adobe Distiller I got something for $19.99 called PDFill and a bunch of free tools included. Check out www.pdfill.com. I have used it with great success to do a simple task.

    For form filling, I use Acrobat 7 Pro, scan in the document, then go through and mark up the user fill areas. It's a slow process though, but then I'm no expert at their form tool. Perhaps someone with more experience with it can comment if it gets easier.
