My Genealogy hobby has recently become active again and it would be very nice if I could use a pdf file for a turnaround document.

That is I send a form to somone and if they can edit it and send the updated file back to me I would use the info to update the family database.

The primary reasons are: 1. sending and receiving pdf type files sre smaller hence faster transmit & receive times.

2. The edited doc allows the sender and the receiver to look at the same information for follow up questions or for adding additional research uncovered later.

Is there any function in dopdf or plans for any to accomplish that?

No, dopdf cannot edit pdf files. In your case I'm thinking that you could use the Commenting feature in Adobe Reader, so that if there are corrections to be added to the PDF it will be added as a comment and when you receive it back if you consider it's ok you'll have to add the correction in the original document.

Thank you for the reply. I wasn't aware of the commenting feature, I will give it a try.

Thanks for the assistance.
