Using Fillable PDFs
Important Notice to PC Users
To open and complete the PDF application forms, you will need Adobe Reader 7.05 and above (version 9 is recommended). If you do not have it installed on your computer, you may download the latest version free of charge from http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions
If you don't have an up to date version, there is a strong possibility of technical difficulties.
We suggest that you first download the PDF form to your computer or network drive, and then open it with Adobe Reader and fill it. If you open the PDF via your browser instead, please use Internet Explorer or Firefox (Chrome does not support fillable PDF forms). You can either type information directly into each field or cut and paste text from your own word processor. The font is preselected and cannot be changed. You can only type regular text (upper and lower cases); the system will not accept underlined text, bold or italics, script or formulas, curved or slanted apostrophes, double quotation marks or long dashes. You can save your data and re-open the file later to modify or enter additional information.
Important Notice to Macintosh System Users
DO NOT use the Preview program to fill in the PDF form. If you do so, you will lose "ALL YOUR DATA" when saving the PDF form. Adobe Reader is the only program that will allow you to work with the form properly, and allow us to read the results once back on a Windows machine. Most MAC users do not already have Adobe Reader. Please use the following link to install it to your machine free of charge: http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions
If you are having problems using the form fillable PDF via your browser, proceed as follows:
- Open Adobe Reader.
- Select Edit from the menu.
- Select Preferences.
- Select Internet.
