You could either create a VisualForce page that you render as PDF, see this tutorial:

or consider this approach:

and the related Adobe XFDF information:

Thanks for reply.

Thanks Again.


Hi again,


It seems this didn't work for me as I need to genarate pdf where user can add some checkboc mark and some text area nad after that they want to save the file and want to send file via email.


Render as pdf does not allow to add iput field.

XFDF dose not allow to save file with adobe reader.


could you give some idea which can solve my problem?




When opening an XFDF with the adobe reader, it depends on the properties of the PDF form whether you can save it or not.


Try using the PerForm app, it's intended for PDF population with data from salesforce, see if it answers your needs.
