    I have forms that I need to fill in and have signed by clients. I have found a way to do it but, it take me several steps to do this . Following is the steps I use:
    1) write on write pad
    2) download to drop box
    3) go to laptop
    4) copy and past from drop box into word document
    5) save on desk top 6) go to myfax.com to convert to PDF
    7) email PDF to myself
    8) retrieve mail from my IPad
    9) open with PDF expert
    10) past client signature into form that client sign using PDF expert
    11) email back to myself
    12) post into clients folder

    I have to do several of these, there has to be an easier way.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help Don

    It looks, as if the main issue is converting the written text to PDF, so here is a work-flow for creating the PDF file directly on your iPad.

    1)write on writepad
    2)copy all text (I don't own WritePad, so this is just a guess, but it should work)
    3)paste into Pages
    4)email document and choose PDF as the export file format
    5)follow your step 8 to 12

    Another thought. Is WritePad necessary? If you would type the document, you could use an app, such as Note Taker HD, where you type the text and than let the costumer sign. It would shortcut all the above steps and you would just email the document to yourself at the end.

    If you can copy text directly from WritePad, than this process may be useful:
    1)write in WritePad
    2)copy text
    3)paste into a new NoteTaker HD document
    4)sign the document
    5)email as PDF


    I am not entirely sure, what you meant with step 10. So this may or may not work.

    If you have Office 2007.
    You may prepare the document, and save it to PDF file.
    There is a free add on from Microsoft for save as PDF.
    Once you have the pdf, you may copy it to iBook.
    Plain and simple.
    There are also free Print drivers that allows you to print a file into a PDF /
    It is as if you install a new printer.
