Q&A: Log Your Memory’s Fillable PDFs

I’m excited to share our newest line of Memory Logbooks in a format I’ve been wanting to offer ever since Log Your Memory was born … a fillable PDF!

Fillable PDF close-upWhat is a fillable PDF? It’s a regular PDF document with a special feature … you can open it using the free Adobe Reader software and type in your information right on your computer. It’s perfect for people like myself who prefer to do just about everything on the computer!

Our fillable 2013 Memory Logbooks even have image boxes that allow you to upload layouts, photos or other images right into your page, a feature that is especially useful for those who enjoy completing Photo-A-Day and other similar projects.

What can you do with a fillable PDF? Our fillable PDFs are formatted so that you can save them to your computer for later use. You can also print them out on your home printer so that you can add them to your own binder, album, folder or whatever system works best for you. That means you can save extra copies for safe-keeping (highly recommended) or make multiple copies for sharing. You can also go back and easily fix errors, add or subtract information, or tweak to your heart’s content.

What are the limitations of a fillable PDF? As with all digital files, there are some precautions that should be taken when using fillable PDFs to reduce the risk of losing your precious documentation. The following important message is included with our fillable PDF products…

IMPORTANT WARNING!! Because of the volume of data that could be collected in these fillable books, it is important that you take measures to prevent loss due to damaged files. The larger the amount of data, the more easily the file can become corrupted, particularly if your computer happens to crash during use.

PLEASE observe the following precautions to protect your memories…

SAVE OFTEN – Save your fillable book often and in more than one location. That way if something happens to one of the copies, you’ll have a backup copy.

PRINT AS YOU GO – It is advisable to print pages as they are completed so that if something happens to the PDF file, you’ll still have the completed pages.

USE THE LATEST VERSION OF ADOBE READER – It is strongly recommended that you use the latest version of this free software. Download the latest copy at http://get.adobe.com/reader/
