Default Create editable PDF form using Word 2007 & MS PDF Add-In

Is it possible to create an editable PDF form using the MS PDF Add-in with
Word 2007?

I tried adding text fields (both legacy and activex), then publishing as
PDF, but it didn't work. In the PDF, the text fields appeared, but you
couldn't type text into them.

Any help would be appreciated. thanks.

No, you need Acrobat Pro or other third party software.

Thank you!
Too bad the MS add-in isn't as feature-rich as OpenOffice's PDF exporter...
