You can use LibreOffice for this, it should be installed by default on most Linux systems. On the toolbar, go to “View -> Toolbar -> Form Control” and click it. This will add the Form Control toolbar to your Libre Writer interface. After you have finished with the document, go to “File -> Export as PDF”. Make sure the “Create PDF Form” checkbox is selected....

LibreOffice has been mentioned already... But Scribus is a lesser known software (a "Page Layouts Creating Program") which is able to output high-quality PDF files, not matched in feature-richness by any other Open Source application: It can create PDF/X, PDF/A, layers, fillable forms and much more. Details about PDF forms creation here: Your first PDF ...

Open Office lets you embed form elements, and then export the doc as a fillable PDF using FDF to submit.

for security reasons i would strongly advise against web-based services to store your secret passwords! instead i would highly recommend a local installed open source software and just sync your encrypted passwords across your devices via any sync-service... as specific software i can recommend KeePassXC (a fork of KeePassX) with several good features: it ...

Nuance OmniForm has been discontinued by Nuance in 2005 and is no longer sold or supported: I agree with Nico Schuele it seems like nobody had reverse-engineered the format and since it got ended a decade ago I'm not very optimistic that anyone will do it. That said, .ofm files can be opened and edited by Nuance OmniPage (might need the ultimate edition), ...

Finally I found one lib: Dragdealer.js It needs no depedency, and provide callbacks to allow customization of the slider when the handle is dragged (like color customization, ...) An example of what I make:

I have come across this Bootstrap Form Builder (GitHub project here) that seems to do exactly what I need.

Here's the best thing I've found. It's very similar to what I had in mind. http://dobtco.github.io/formbuilder/

You could take a look at https://yamdu.com This is a production management software. One feature is "Crew Management". That may be worth a look.

I know you might be hesitant to sync your passwords and form fills with a cloud service, but if it helps you feel better if the service is open-source and constantly being updated, I would check out Bitwarden. It's free unless you want a little storage space for important files along with its other capabilities, and if you decide you want that, it's only $10/...

First and foremost: DO NOT use Preview.app to fill forms; it does an excellent job damaging the form beyond repair when saving it. That said, I am not aware of any software allowing to edit PDF forms on Mac besides Acrobat Pro (I may be wrong on that, wouldn't be the first time). (there may be a version of Foxit, but I don't know how well they support ...

For XFA, you can forget anything on mobile devices; here, you'd have to follow the original intention of XFA, namely to provide a description which allows a server to properly render the form after having sniffed the viewer's capability. For Acroforms, the leader of the pack is PDFExpert by Readdle for iOS, and qPDF Notes for Android (however, it is weaker ...

For Acroforms, Adobe's Acrobat Reader for iOS/Android supports some of the scripts, I can't find any documentation on what is and isn't supported though (I have done very limited testing of my own). PDF Expert from Readdle (iOS only) is recommended in other forums when this question comes up.

From what your headline says, I was thinking of Inkscape right away. Ever heard about this? It's free and open source and runs on all major OS's (Linux, Windows, OSX). Inkscape is a comprehensive vector graphics tool. You can either exchange the native *.svg file with your colleagues, who might import it into MS Word or MS PowerPoint. Or you might try any ...

This question is quite complex because It is not clear if you are going to actually process this forms (like receiving the answers in a database) or you just want to receive the answers in your email. In the last case, you can use google forms, "Show questions based on answers": https://support.google.com/docs/answer/141062?hl=en If you are going to ...

You could try out "kintone". It has features to create multiple databases (which they call "Apps") via GUI, and you don't have to be an IT expert to create/edit these. It also has a feature called "Spaces", which is like a forum for teams to share information. You can have club A creating and using their own "Space", and club B creating and using their ...

Formotus may be a possible answer. Whilst it is not free, sorry, but there is a good solution with a free trial. There is a pricing matrix available here.

I would recommend BugHerd - I've only used it once, but I'm pretty sure it does exactly what you're after! It embeds as a script into your site, and creates a "Send Feedback" button at the bottom right of the screen. A user can then either select a portion of the page to report to you, or they can just report the page as a whole. You get a report which ...

Your question seems to have two distinct parts: gathering the data and submitting the data. For the first part For the first part since Windows doesn't support multiple selection to the clipboard in most applications I would suggest that you would be better off defining your data source(s) more specifically and the finding programmatic methods for ...

Formvalidation.io is quite good. And if the project gets commercial it won't be too expensive to use it. But anyway, I would like to provide you an good openSource alternative. You can try to use jqBootstrapValidation too. It's free of charge and can be downloaded on GitHub. It's published under MIT, you need to be sure that this license matches your ...

There is also the jquery plugin called jQuery formBuilder and the repo for it is available here. I'm not seeing a release licence like GPL, or MIT, at this time, so it may not be suitable for some projects. It does look to be pretty active, which is a plus. EDIT-- The licence is GNU and can be found here: http://formbuilder.readthedocs.io/en/latest/license/...

Wufoo sounds like what you need. After building your form with drag and drop tools, it will give you an HTML snippet to paste on your website. The free version allows 3 forms. It organizes your responses on a spreadsheet that you can export to Excel or CSV.

With a little work you can do exactly this with the python2 mechanize library - it will act as the browser and can automate filling in even the most complex of forms. There is quite a good cheat sheet here. Free Can pretend to be most web browsers Note that at the moment the mechanize module has not yet been fully ported to python3 so you will need to use/...

I would suggest making either a form using or database product like LibreBase or a mail merge using your word processor software like LibreOffice for MAC if you don't have one with this feature. You have a standard template and a second data source and use substitution. You will have to add a bunch of custom fields to suite your needs. LibreOffice uses &...

a few months later: I consider WaveMaker and nuBuilder, in different ways, to be not want I want. Another project which I discovered is phpMyEdit. This was mainly developed 2000-2008, but still has a forum where people post questions. phpMyEdit is a simple idea: provide a straightforward means of editing a single mySQL table, using a PHP-generated HTML "...

Along the lines of Kexi, LibreOffice, and MS Access style form/subforms; you might want to investigate WaveMaker.

WaveMaker Studio will look and feel especially familiar to client/server developers who are used to ...
