  1. Editable form fields should keep font properties they were exported with

    When you export an interactive PDF from InDesign, form fields that define a font and size do not carry over to the actual PDF and have to be redefined in Acrobat Pro.

    • Enable a way to have a drop down menu blank (no items selected) until clicked

      Please enable a way to have the drop down menus on PDF forms blank until clicked on. If the item list has three or less items, you can click the blank space (Under dropdown properties > options > item list) but if there are four or more list items, one of them is always selected and shows on the drop down list (not blank.)

      • Create Expandable Text Field Forms

        Adobe Acrobat Pro needs to have the ability to create expandable text field forms that allow the text box to expand when the user types similar to what you can do with Livecycle.

        This is a feature that has been requested a lot online. Currently Acrobat Pro only allows multi-line text field forms with a scroll bar, but you cannot create an expanding text field form that increases in the height of the text field to accomodate more text.

        The functionality to create this even in Livecycle is too clunky and complicated to use.

          • Change font default settings before Acrobat detect's form fields (Adobe pro 9)

            I'm able to manually change the font in Properties. From what I saw on the internet, there are many end users looking to change the default (font details) settings in PDF Pro 9. I would like to suggest an enhancement to allow the end user to change the default font settings.

            • allow printing of all data in text box even if it exceeds the amount visible on the display.

              there needs to be a way to print all of the text in a text box without using auto font size. in auto font size the font shrinks as more text is added. this is not readable. all of the text should print even if it is more than is visible in the text box on the display.

              • Expandable (and/or pop-out) "FIELDS" Pane When Editing a Form

                (See attachment)
                It would be great to be able to grab and pull the left edge of the FIELDS pane over to the left to widen it. Some of the text field names can be very long and can look identical to others unless you can see the whole title. (I know you can hover over the title to see the full text but that only seems to work intermittently, and is time-consuming).
                Also, when scrolling up and down or when trying to grab and move titles to rearrange the tab order, it's easy to get confused and lose your…

                • Detailed step-by-setp instructions to create complex forms

                  There are many basic youtube videos on creating forms. I need to know how to create complex forms with equation, reference fields and so on. What i learned from what is available out there is not adequate and doesn't work all the time. So better instructions are needed. You sell a product but must also provide good instructions on how to use it well. If there isn't any internal resource, please contract 3-party to do so. i have spent so much time on it and am still fumbling around. Very unproductive with my time.

                  • Format Painter

                    It would be very helpful if Acrobat Pro were to have a format painter feature like Microsoft's. As it is, one has to go through all the form fields and change them manually one at a time after Auto doesn't deliver what is desired.

                    • Form Field Calculation

                      On Adobe Acrobat DC for Mac, when trying to program a calculation, the Field Selection dialog box is much too small to see the field names, and it can't be enlarged! There doesn't seem to be a way to select the fields outside of the dialog box on the form, which would be very convenient and make sense. It makes it impossible to use the calculate feature if you have long field names, which Adobe creates by default.

                        • Lifecycle Designer as it offers more formula functionality than pdf fillable form

                          Lifecycle designer offered more maths/formula functionality, so either bringing back lifecycle designer (which I lost when I upgraded software), or making the products that will be lost when upgraded more apparent so we could keep some of the older options - which then leads to the next problem of making some of the older products that are widely used, compatible with the new upgraded product.

                          • Clear Form

                            The option to clear all the fields on a form has been removed. I have a form that I re-use for various jobs, and now I must manually clear all of the fields in the form in order to fill it out afresh. The deletion of this feature irritates me mightily.

                            • Bug in DC editing Form Fields 1 page at a time - this feature was fully functional in Adobe Pro Xi

                              Editing Form Fields.

                              In previous versions of Adobe Pro 9, 10 & 11 it was possible to edit Form Fields 1 page at a time by:

                              selecting and highlighting 1 field,
                              then right click to Select All,
                              then successfully edit all fields on just that 1 page
                              Then save.

                              This does not work in Adobe DC. When same steps are followed Adobe selects EVERY field in Form on EVERY page (very slowly). When Field Properties are edited Program then freezes each time you try to save.

                              Please Adobe RESTORE same 1 page Form Field editing to DC as was fully…

                              • It should be very simple to add a fillable form to the end of a regular pdf. Currently this cannot be done.

                                I should be able to Combine or Organize a fillable pdf and a regular (non-filled) pdf. When I do, the regular pdf becomes fillable.

                                  • Set tab order

                                    In Acrobat 9 and higher, the "set tab order" function is very cumbersome as opposed to the previous method of just clicking the field in the order that I want to set the tabs.
                                    I have a form that has 210 fields and dragging them in a list is very tedious and in some cases, the order changes randomly and I have to start over.

                                    • Bug - Form Field Properties dialog doesn't save Calculations when accessed from Tools Pane field list

                                      When selecting a field from the Tools Pane, Rt-click, and selecting Properties, the Calculations tab does not work. You can enter a formula, but it will not save into the field properties.

                                      However, if you double-click the field on the page to open the Properties, and enter the same formula in the Calculations tab, it will save it.

                                      This is CERTAINLY a bug, as there is no reason the Properties dialog should not act the same way no matter how it was opened. And the correct action should be to save formulas that are entered into the Calculations tab.

                                      • Possible Bug

                                        When creating a text field, under the General tab, where the Form Field is set to "Visible", if under the Format tab you enter the following custom script (for example):

                                        var message = 'Title'
                                        if (event.value == '') {
                                        event.target.display = display.noPrint
                                        event.value = message
                                        } else {
                                        event.target.display = display.visible
                                        }

                                        Saving the PDF apparently corrupts the file in some way where when you attempt to re-open it, it causes Acrobat to crash and the pdf is unrecoverable. When the Form Field is set to "Visible but doesn't print" no error occurs.

                                        • auto-complete in forms should work in all fields and with any string

                                          When auto-complete is turned on for a form, field entries are being saved but some randomly fail to auto-complete. For a form created in Acrobat, I can go to Edit-->Preferences-->Forms-->Auto-Complete-->Edit Entry List and see all the strings I would like to auto-complete. But some of them never auto-complete while others always do. I can find no common factor in the fields that are failing. See the attached form that you may experiment with. Support reproduced this bug and could not get all fields to work either. Case number 189034266
