However, these PDF tools do not allow you to create PDF forms on Mac. Especially after you have upgraded your Mac to the new macOS 10.15 Catalina, things become harder. While a third-party PDF Form Creator for Mac like PDFelement Pro can be the best helper for you. This guide will show you how to create PDF forms on Mac without any fuss. On your Mac, open the document you want to save as a PDF. Choose File Print. Click the PDF pop-up menu, then choose Save as PDF. Choose a name and location for the PDF file. Enter the information you want in the Title, Author, Subject, and Keywords fields. Later, you can search on the contents of those fields using Spotlight.
