For my partial year, I can't do that. The PDF fill_in now uses features available only in Adobe Acrobat: https://www.tax.ny.gov/pit/ads/efile_addit203-2d.htm
So, I'm seriously considering hand writing my return for the first time in more than a decade. I could use flpsed or other such tool to overlay text onto the boxes, but that's more work and why should I got to trouble to make their OCR job easier when NYS refuses to respect my software freedom?
(The federal form fill-ins (1040, etc.) seem to continue to work fine with Evince. e-filing at the federal level has always required a third-party vendor, and I know of none that are Free Software friendly, but that's a slightly different issue. NYs provides the e-filing directly on their own website.)

“In Canada I can't file electronically unless I use a third party from the Intuit lobby, or a CPA.
So I send a stack of paper.”
I'm in Canada too; I use one of the online services who provide free returns for seniors. I hate the situation, and comes the revolution ...
