Hi there. I'm wondering how the new Microsoft Forms application would work. I have always struggled with this. My goal would be to create the form, and then convert it to a PDF, so they can be sent out without any changes being made to the form itself.

This is way more than can be discussed with ease in an online forum.  But, yes, it can be done and the easiest way to do it is using a Microsoft Word Document Template with form fields which you protect after having created it such that the only alteration allowed is the filling in of those fields.

I find the legacy version of the form fields to be easier to work with and easier from an accessibility standpoint than the modern Active X versions, and unless they've been removed very, very recently, which is unlikely, they should still be available under Office 365.

I have several examples of such forms employing both text edit boxes and checkboxes that I'm happy to share with anyone who wants something to play with to see how they are put together.

It's very difficult to discuss this step-by-step in the abstract because there are a lot of steps, and skipping any one of them can give odd results, but it's not difficult.

If you'd like a copy of the forms I have, which were created for former blind clients of mine, please reply to me off-list using the Reply to Sender link at the end of this and every Groups.io message.

Hi,

 

Here are the steps again which have been posted by a couple people.  Note, the “address omnibox” is in the same place as the old Address Bar.  If you are not at it, press alt+d.

 

1. From Edge 79, go to address omnibox and type “edge://flags” (without quotes and EXACTLY AS SHOWN).

2. From experiments edit field, type “UI Automation” and press Tab.

3. From Native UI Automation combo box, choose “disabled” and restart Edge if prompted.

I’m not sure exactly what you are wanting to do, but in Word, just like making a Heading level you can set some text as a subtitle or title from the Styles menu.

I find it is easiest to type the text, select it, then press control+shift+s and arrow to the item I want.

Well, it sounds like either a driver issue, or more likely a hardware problem.  Either way, it is under warranty and the manufacturer is more likely to know about it than a random person on the internet.  Not fun, but that's why you buy something new with a warranty, just in case it was made on a Monday.
