Hi palango,While not a 'dummies" book, it would be remiss not to mention "PDF Forms Bible" by Ted Padova and Angie Okamoto (Wiley publishers). Half the book covers AcroForms ( created in Acrobat) and the other half LiveCycle Designer PDF forms. A CD is included has lots of sample forms.Hope this helps,Dimitriwww.pdfscripting.com

FormRouter just announced this week that Reader Extensions are now as low as $125 per enabled PDF page. Sounds like that may be more economical than the $29X22 for Cute.FormRouterGood luck!DimitriWindJack Solutionswww.windjack.com
