Fillable PDFs: Why don’t I see any fillable fields? It looks like a normal PDF.

First, the obvious: Check to make sure you opened the fillable version and not the regular version. If you’ve got the fillable PDF and it’s not showing any form fields, then most likely your PDF reader can’t detect them. For example, if you view a fillable PDF in Google Drive, you won’t see the fillable fields. You and/or your students will need to download a different PDF reader. Adobe Reader is a free download or app available for most computers and devices.
