Hi folks,

A lot of tax forms (US and state of CA) are available as fill-in PDF forms.

Using the free version of Acrobat, you cannot save a filled-out version of 
this: you can only print it. Yes, you can print to PS or PDF, and therefore 
have an electronic copy for future reference, but you cannot save an 
*editable* copy.

Should the government be thereby institutionalizing this format (Adobe Acrobat 
PDF) to the benefit of the one corporation (Adobe) that provides tools to 
properly edit it? Or is this okay? Or is there an alternative tool for 
editing and saving PDFs of which I'm not yet aware?

Thanks a lot for any insights you can provide. Regards & peace,
