  1. Insert Answer Text Fields into a Multi-line Text Field

    It would be so convenient especially for contracts with long lists of terms and conditions, to have the signer enter their group name as an answer in a text field, and be able to insert that text field of their group name as needed throughout the multi-line scrolling text field.

  3. Adobe not recognizing check boxes

    I work for a municipality. I have to create numerous fillable forms that are posted online. A few years ago, Adobe had no problem turning these forms, created in either “LaTeX” or MS Word, into fillable forms. However, that is no longer so. Adobe is now unable to recognize “squares” or “boxes” used as checkboxes. This is a significant problem. Some of my forms have dozens or more checkboxes. Creating each one manually is a real chore.

    There is no logical reason for this failure by Adobe. It did work correctly a few years ago. I am perfectly willing to…

  6. Incorrect Adding on rounded numbers

    I talked to support today about this issue and they too could not explain it. Fills forms being rounded and added together is a crucial part of my job and I'm finding that oftentimes the rounding is incorrect by .01, often because is was incorrectly added after the rounding process.

    I know Adobe has the ability to round numbers in the fill forms to a specific number of Decimal places, but what I am sort of seeing is that it doesn't matter what rounding you use, Adobe adds the raw numbers (Which defeats the purpose of rounding).

    I have attached…

  7. Bug Report: PDF Forms

    I have been marketing my PDF forms with many graphics and buttons for about 8 years. The bugs caused by the switch to DC years ago was not backwards compatible—but eventually fixed.

    The latest update to DC is acting very oddly. There has always been a lag for screen redraw but now my machine is “bouncing” and it takes several minutes to enter text in a simple line with 4 fields.

    I rebuilt the form with less graphics with no luck. I’m working on a Mac with the newest iOS and newest version of DC. Any suggestions?

  8. Is it possible to rewrite the code so the header can show CUI in the header (ie, “CUI-Privacy/SP”) instead of Privacy\General Privacy-Specif

    Is it possible to rewrite the code so the header can show CUI in the header (ie, “CUI-Privacy/SP”)
    instead of Privacy\General Privacy-Specified which is currently showing and non-compliant with NARA requirements?

  10. Forms

    I recently updated my Adobe license and noted that the new version no longer provides the 'Actions', 'Format', 'Validate' and 'Calculate' options when I create a new form. Have these functionalities been removed or am I not finding them?

  12. Adobe Pro keeps deleting radio button name

    Version and system information at the bottom.

    Here's a potential bug that I found:
    1. Change a radio button name.
    2. Save and close the PDF.
    3. Reopen the PDF.
    4. Observe that the radio button name is missing.

    This is driving me crazy because I have validation set up to make sure all the form fields are filled in properly. I can't do that if the radio button name is missing.

    Adobe Pro:
    Architecture: x86_64
    Build: 21.5.20058.441104
    AGM: 4.30.107
    CoolType: 5.14.5
    JP2K: 1.2.3.48698

    Computer:
    Model Name: MacBook Pro
    Model Identifier: MacBookPro15,1
    Processor Name: 6-Core Intel Core i9

  13. Add multiple choice for drop down

    Add the functionality of a multiple choice drop down box to allow users to enter a number of options and have more than one selected. This should be available via list boxes however it does not work.

    Adobe Acrobat bug
    I have been experiencing this bug in two of my laptops and I cant find a way to fix this. When using fill and sign, my text disappears randomly and I find this texts on different pages of the pdf. It is very frustrating as this bug has been happening to me for a year now.

  16. Dark Mode/Fillable Forms

    Not only does Acrobat need a Dark Mode, it needs to be compatible with fillable forms. Bright white screens are ******* the eyes, and it's not fair to our eyeballs to change the fillable forms box to BLACK whenever we change to custom colors to ease the glare from the screen. We can't see what we're typing, We need this feature!

  17. Text in "Prepare form" as object

    Acrobat DC 21.005.20048 (Win10):
    Actions taken:
    - Starting a PDF Form from scratch
    - Adding text with text-tool
    - Adding text-field
    - Adding checkbox
    Result:
    Text and any other object cannot be selected at the same time, neither by box-select nor by SHIFT or CTRL.
    Text does not appear in "Fields" list and can thus also not be selected there.
    - Cannot align text with fields or other objects
    (Different text selected does not even promt the alignment-options)
    - Cannot move text with fields

    Proposal:
    - Make text selectable together with fields
    - Create a "label" object, which acts like…

  19. Make null value an option in dropdown list user interface

    Currently you have to use Java Script to create a dropdown list that includes an item with a null (blank) export value. There is not way to add a null value to the list in the Prepare Forms - Dropdown Properties user interface. You can create a list item that looks blank by using the space bar, but that is not the same as null and will generate an error when importing the data into our database (where true null is an acceptable entry, but any text entries that don't match the validation list are not, and the entire record…

  20. Improve form field auto detection

    I am currently stuck on a project here due to the sometimes unpredictable and difficult to work with form field auto detection in Acrobat. I am designing a rather complex form in InDesign and exporting the PDF to have the form fields auto-generated in Acrobat.
    Radio Buttons in particular are the trickiest to work with because of their demanding conditions. It is leading to a frustrating end-user experience when the radio button form fields get generated as circular check boxes which is intuitive and confusing. It seems to unexpectedly incorrectly interpret them as check boxes in some cases, and correctly…
