I am regular user of Adobe Acrobat Pro (Version 9, currently), for document manipulation purposes. I am certainly not expert at it, but I'm not entirely stupid. I sometimes run into forms (the ones I work with are typically from various state and federal government agencies) where the helpful persons setting up those forms either accidentally or set up with programming/permissions that don't allow me be able to manipulate the forms. These are not high level sensitive documents, or anything, and all I am trying to do is to be able to add/edit/delete various form fields in order to fill out the forms properly.
Here is a link to the current form that has me stymied - it is the S-Corporation election form from the IRS (form 2553): http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f2553.pdf [more inside]

Acrobat help? Would like to create a dropdown list where you can choose multiple selections and then have the non-selected options disappear. [more inside]

I've an idea to take a group of industry standard PDF forms & build a website that allows you to enter your information once to populate all of the forms. The problem: how do I do that? [more inside]

Is it possible to create a fillable PDF form that includes logic?
Assume there is a sum calculation with total of $1000.00
If check box = selected, tax=12%,
else if check box off, tax =0.
If check box is selected, the tax field will show $120.00 and the grand total below it (sum of total + tax) will be $1120.00
If check box is not selected, grand total will be $1000.00

I've been tasked with creating a fillable form for invoices at work. However, I need it to be dynamic/flexible, and I'm not sure how to do that. [more inside]

Our company needs forms in Word and Excel formats. Some forms contain math functions i.e. expense report forms. Is there a service to convert these forms in to PDF "filable" forms. We can buy Adobe Acrobat Professional, and but we need someone to convert about 50-100 forms for us as we do not have the time.

I fill out a lot of the same postal form, just with small amounts of different information in it. This form needs to be printed out a couple dozen times a day. Is it possible to dreates a PDF in Acrobat or Indesign that has a user-fillable text box that will show up when printed? I'm currently just editing and printing a Word doc, which is less than ideal.
