I would like to generate templates first and then use these as my starting point to fill out information.
At my day job, we used iText in combination with Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat. First, our team designed a shipment form using Microsoft Word. Next, we converted the Word document to PDF using Adobe Acrobat. Then, using iText's template capability, we loaded the PDF file into our application. From there, it was quite easy to fill in data values on the form and output the final PDF document.
Do you have any tips how to do this, some document etc. that would help me set this up?
