Those durn PDF files

One of the things that annoy me the most about the Internet is that so many times I get a form sent to me that is a PDF file.  And I get instructed that I need to fill out the form and return it.  But I didn’t have any way to edit pdf files to be able to fill out the form and return it.  And that would get very annoying – I would print out the form, fill it out by hand, then scan it with my scanner into my computer as a jpg and then email it back to wherever it needed to go.

What I didn’t know until recently was that I needed a pdf editor software to be able to do that.  Apparently that software is not something that comes auto-installed on computers when you first buy them.

I think that should be a standard software program installed on every new computer.  The ability to do a pdf conversion from word to pdf and from pdf to word seems to be something that everyone that uses the Internet is going to need to be able to do.
