While there’s no way in the current version of QuarkXPress to add interactivity to a form you’ve created, it’s straightforward to use Adobe Acrobat to add interactivity to the exported PDF form.
On Lynda.com, author Claudia McCue presents an entire course on how to create forms in Acrobat X. Topics include how to design forms in other applications; adding text fields, check boxes, or buttons; and securing forms with passwords and digital signatures. A subscription to Lynda.com (starting at $25/month) is required. Watch it here.
