There are several nice fillable PDFs available for the RPG hobby. These have boxes that number values can be entered and simple formulas are calculated throughout the sheet. I'm finding that the programs I've tried cannot save this data. I've tried PDFEdit, XPDF, and Evince. Is there a Linux program that will save fillable PDFs? Or perhaps I'm not using the above correctly?

I'm pretty sure Adobe Reader can do it; I've heard rumours that Okular can fill forms, but I don't know if it does the JavaScript that is needed to dynamically update other values. –  Ulrich Schwarz Mar 19 '12 at 9:11

This page states that Evince, Okular (in a somewhat limited way), Adobe Acrobat Reader and Cabaret Stage support filling forms.
