Finalizing the IDS form before filing
Robert Lelkes — Feb 24, 2017 12:27PM PST
According to the unit on generating populated IDS forms, the populated form must be opened with a paid version of Adobe Acrobat before filing it with the USPTO to ensure that the USPTO will accept it. I do not have a paid version of Adobe Acrobat. Would opening the form in Power PDF from Nuance achieve the same result?

Since we now automatically generate IDS forms populated with your data, you do not need a paid version to open and/or manually modify. The paid version was required when importing XML data into the SB/08, which is no longer a required step. You should be fine with the free reader. We hope this helps.
