Thanks, I'll have a look - this is driving me nuts. Using a career consultancy service (thankfully, not paid for by me) who have provided all the self evaluation forms in non-editable format. So you can't just e-mail your consultant with your answers! In my case, without a scanner, I'd have to use snail mail, or take them to the office in person. Seems a ridiculously long-winded way to have to go about things, in this modern age.
I think there are some good reasons for sometimes creating non-editable files (if it was contractual terms or something, you don't want the recipient to be able to tinker with). But when it's forms the recipient is supposed to complete and return?
Why should they have to print it all out and scan it back in, or stick it in the post?
