  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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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?

  5. 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!

  6. 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

  7. NON-Sign Web Forms

    Sign has the ability to create web forms, I'd like to see a feature that is the same but with no signature or certification - just a form that is distributable by link, gets filled out, the responses go to my account, and I can download and edit the document the same as any other PDF. With all the same fields (INCLUDING REQUIRED FILE UPLOAD) as sign except certified signature. Needed to be able to manage form submissions and attachments without the red tape of Sign

  8. 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.

  9. bug

    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.

  11. Convert check boxes to radio buttons

    Would be lovely if you could click on a checkbox and convert it to a radio button. I have to change these out all the time from scratch because Acrobat will make checkboxes instead of radio buttons

  12. Ability to copy over all form fields created into one PDF into another PDF

    Ability to copy over all form fields created into one PDF into another PDF. For example, an application packet that one would make into a fillable form, then - since many application packets have the same blanks and check box spots, be able to pull all the same fields from one state's application packet to another state's packet.

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. Adding Canadian SIN option

    Currently when you select the Format in Text Field Properties you can select "Special" and select Social Security Number, however this format is a US only format, for Canadians our format is ###-###-###.
    This would be helpful to have when creating a fillable application.

  16. Support of XFA

    Dear Adobe,

    Unfortunately all Browsers send an error message to the user if he/she wants to open a dynamic XFA form file.You offer some solution in your help to configure local systems etc... That does not help organizers of events. The end user is often not capable or wants to follow these instructions nd refuses to use XFA based forms. Is there a perspective that there will be a solution for the browser to open these files like back in the days..?. The status quo is hurting the image of PDFs a bit...

  18. Bug: "No error" message when viewing XFA forms

    In version 2021.001.20138 it's impossible to open XFA-based forms (sample attached).

    1. Open any XFA form.
    2. All you get is an modal message "No error". When you click [OK] then you'll see the "Please wait …" shell PDF of the XFA form, which is generally only shown by PDF viewer that don't support XFA.
    3. Tested on Windows 10
    4. Display contens of dynamic XFA form
    5. Nonsense error message "No error." and display of shell PDF.

    The problem is the same in Acrobat Reader DC.

  19. Prepare Form; Tabbing Field Groupings

    Problem: When creating a fillable form, you either have to go in order of fields you create or in order of field creation number. When I receive forms that have already been given a great deal of time, the tabbing functionality is not ideal due to the function obeying the rule of field creation/ purposeful placing in the fields scrollbar. This becomes a chore when dealing with hundreds of fields. Ideally at this moment you want to scrap the whole creation and begin in a more formal and tedious recreation.

    Solution: Multiple click/drag selectable field grouping. Where you can form…

  20. Slider control field

    Just like text boxes, check boxes, dropdown lists, etc are available controls to add to a form, it would be great to have a slider control as well. This control should be able to be horizontal or vertical, specify the default location of the slider, specify min and max values for a 0 - 100 percentage of the slider and assign a value to the percentage starting at the min to the max (IE 0% of the slider could be a value of 0 and a value of 100% could be 500 and a value of 50% would be 250…
