Re: Filling In PDF Files

Hey Jen (@JENNJENN72), I’m wondering if the Adobe + Dropbox integration is what you’re looking for, since it enables you to Edit your .pdf files stored in Dropbox & save them back to your account seamlessly. If you let me know how you’d like to go about editing those (eg. online 🕸️/on your desktop application desktop or on your phone iphone), I’d happily follow-up with more tips on that. 
 
Hopefully this points you towards the right direction & please let me know how you get on with my advice or if you have further questions. Enjoy the rest of your day until we talk again Jen!

Hi Jane! 

Thank you for your quick response! I am looking to be able to edit the pdf form and save it online in Dropbox. We had an issue where we had a USB device that had info stored on it that got completely wiped out. So that is why we are choosing to trust Dropbox to be able to store that info on in case that would ever happen again we have this as a backup.

I have not used it, but I know pdffiller.com has a Dropbox integration. Maybe that would work for you?

To add to what @Jane & @gregoc have suggested already, I'd recommend checking out our extensions as well as you'll find that there are plenty 3rd party apps we integrate directly with; simply browse to your PDF file and click on the "Open With" button. From there you should be able to see a list of your options and select the most appropriate one according to your needs and liking. 

I hope this helps and keep us posted on your progress @JENNJENN72

Yes...and it works OK.  But, you have to take out a $8/mo subscription (minimum), and signers will be asked to do the same (SignNow).  There's a free 30-day trial, with all subscriptions, which you can cancel.  But, if it's an ongoing need...it ain't free.

Just my 2 cents.
