I have a requirement from the boss. She’s used both OpenOffice.org and Microsoft Office to produce forms that she can fill in electonically, print off and hand-out to parents. The forms are generally end-of-year reports which she creates electronically and posts out to parents. Both office suites suck for various reasons, most importantly because she says so. So we are looking for some solid software which will allow her to
- define a form structure,
- fill in the template structure,
- print off and look good.
Ideally the software would be Open-Source but because it’s to be used in a school the overriding concern is that it’s free-as-in-beer (I completely disagree, but you can see who wins the arguments round here). Dear lazyweb, does such a solution exist.
