Well there are ways to handle this where the forms are loaded and
output as html, I have seen this and the server handles it itself
but I have had the older system where the server loads a pdf form
in a weird web program and yeah you can't make it do anything.

Everything you wrote in this message is so on point. The form that
is on our state library's website that must be completed to
receive library services is a pdf that you cannot be saved. I
found that so frustrating when I had to fill out such applications
for students. The only extra copies we could make was hard copy

As I've mentioned in the past, there are a very great many
people who do not know how to design a fillable form, whether in
PDF or MS-Word.
I've had a few US government forms that were billed as fillable
that either were not at all, or were, but you couldn't save the
filled-in form, which is pretty useless from a record keeping
perspective. And when you're actually dealing with fillable
forms, type conversions often screw things up.
It's pretty much a black box until you start trying to work with
a given PDF file, regardless of what is claimed.
