Automate filling in PDF?

I have a pdf form, with blank spaces for name, address, etc. Is there a way I can save it (perhaps as a static resource?) and have it autopopulate with fields from my lead object?

Hi Michael,

There is an open idea that you can try upvoting so that if it reaches the necessary number of upvotes it can be considered in the future.

As mentioned in this above link the best solution would be to make a visualforce page render as pdf but AFAIK in case if you are trying to populate a pdf form that you have I don't think this would be possible as we won't be able to map the input fields to the fields on the object, however, in case of the previously mentioned method of rendering visualforce page as pdf I think you would be able to achieve it.

Let me know if it helps you and close your query by marking it as solved so that it can help others in the future.  

Thanks.
