    Well, grammatically it seems fine. I guess I would need to know what it is you are trying to do. I don't want to correct something that doesn't need it. What do you think might be wrong with it?

    I'm writing a tutorial and I want that the reader fills the form w/o other help.

    If it's an instruction in the tutorial, it would make more sense to say:

    "We leave it to the reader to fill in the main form."

    "We left the reader" means that you departed from the reader; in other words, you left the place where the reader was located or you took your attention away from the reader to focus on something else. This doesn't make sense in this context.
