@manu that's fascinating. I never had a pdf form that didn't work in Okular and wouldn't be saved simply with Ctrl+s
@lukas Wait, you could fill out the form in Okular? (maybe I'm too old for this stuff because I saw "annotations" which seems to leave odd "post-it" type notes).
@manu Yes, I don't mean annotations. When opening a pdf with a form, it shows a message with a button that lets you toogle between seeing input forms on top of every form field or seeing the input text as normal text inside the pdf.
To be fair the fact that waving works directly instead of having to go to save as is pretty new.
The only solution I found is to use a printer, a pen and send it via snail mail.
@manu Or the semi-digital solution of printer, pen, scanner and E-Mail.
BTW, it appears that a more recent version of Okular can "just write over" in PDF files. So I guess this will be ready in Debian just before the end of the world.
