While not exactly a "typewriter", I scan an image of the form, save
it as an image file and then load the image into The GIMP. Before I
continue I save the file with a slightly different filename to protect
the original in case I need to start over.
The problems are two:
1. I don't have a scanner
2. The forms are sometimes multipart or have to be their origional
form, not a copy.
