Preview can do it. Just be sure that in your Preferences → PDF tab, you have checked the following option:


And if you have to resave the file (for whatever reasons), use Adobe Reader, which provides the same functionality.

Note: Preview.app can seriously mess up the internal structure of a PDF, so that it is no longer usable.

  • Take a fillable smart form, fill it out in Preview.app, and reopen it in Acrobat…
