I’d like to plug Formulate, most beautiful program ever. At this point, after years of having my own computer, my handwriting is complete and utter crap. There’s nothing I hate more than a form I am supposed to print and fill out by hand—I’m guaranteed to make errors and turn it into something messy and junky looking.

I tried to do this in Acrobat Pro, but I find Acrobat difficult to figure out, and it was a lot of trouble.

Formulate to the rescue! Formulate lets you type on a form, then print it out. Especially good for recommendation forms. Simple and easy to use. And free, although I need to bestir myself and send along some money.

Mac only, although I’m sure there are Windows programs that do the same thing.
