Many many times, I have gotten a PDF form that I have had to fill in.
I always have to resort to printing the form out and filling it in by
hand with a pen. This sucks.
I am wondering, what is the feasibility of something like Abiword
"rendering" (using ghostscript, acrobat, xpdf, whatever) the PDF and
allowing the user to "type on top" of it?
The "cat's ass" would be to print the PDF and the text typed on top of
it all in one shot, but even if Abiword just printed the added text so
that a page had to be printed twice (once to put the PDF on it and the
second time to put the text on top of the PDF), that would be
I just want to be able to do the "word processor" equivillent of
putting a printed form into a typewriter and typing onto it.
