  1. In Adobe Acrobat Pro DC - add a "subtraction" option in the drop-down box in the Text Fields Properties Box. This would be VERY helpful!

    Not having a subtraction option in the Text Field Properties reduces the value of the calculate function. The current "workaround" of inputting a negative number to allow for addition is a poor alternative.

    Hi Gary

    You can either use a custom JavaScirpt calculation or the simplified field notation calculation, if your field names follow the required convention, with the “-” operator you will be able to perform subtraction.

    However, we value your suggestion/ideas and we will have the engineering notified. Should we need more information inregard to this, we shall connect with you
    Thank you for your patience.

  3. Why can't i find any real help?

    Why can't i talk to an expert about the issues I'm having? All the tutorials are much too basic and scrolling through all the reams of posts is exhausting and never results in an answer. I need advice on how to save a pdf. file with radio buttons and fillable sections so i can send it to a client for completion. Why is there no detailed best practice on how to use pre-flight so that forms work for your clients?

  4. Edit fill and stroke in Form fields

    I can't find a way to make a permanent change to appearance of form fields. It will keep having the blue color on top at the end user. In the properties panel it is shown as no fill and stroke. I can see a lot of people asking for this feature - but no solution yet. See https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2467569

  6. Form field autodetection - limit length of form field names (T) and alternate field name (TU)

    When running the form field autodetection there are e.g. multiline text form fields detected. The names of those fields and the alternate field names have a length of up-to 2249 characters (consisting of nearly the whole page text).
    I know that theoretically text strings can be 32K or greater however a meaningful name should be much shorter. So would it be possible to limit the size to a meaningful length of lets say 255? In case no string can be detected the name is "undefined_28" which is good and short...
    Thanks

  7. Bug

    Mohave 10.14.3 and Acrobat DC fillable document saving problem-
    If I get a fillable form from IRS or other government site that needs to be filled in, I can save it to my computer one time. But if I reopen the document to add other information to a fillable area, I cannot save the document a second time. I get an error message saying the file contains "a number that is out of range". This happens for documents from many different websites, so I think the error comes when the document is saved using Mohave. Once saved the "producer" under…

    Thank you for reporting the issue.

    Please check that the form is not being opened in Apple Preview, it happens to get corrupted. Try downloading again from IRS website and instead use Adobe Acrobat/Adobe Reader.

    1. Please share the test file with us using https://forums.adobe.com/docs/DOC-7161 and
    2 the version of Acrobat installed on your machine for us to investigate furthur.

  10. Maximum font size setting for form fill

    Allow the setting of maximum font size for a field when creating a fillable form. This will prevent huge text in a field if there is a small amount of text but would still allow text to reduce in size automatically to fit within the field if needed.

  11. right click to edit fill in text: underlining, bold, italics, superscript subscript and font

    When writing in the fill in portion of the form, I used to be able to right click and underline, bold, italicize, highlight, superscript or subscript my text. I am no longer able to do this and I am super frustrated.

    Please go back to Prepare Forms> edit mode and enable “Allow Rich Text Formating” for the text field

    Once done, you should be able to get the formatting options under right click context menu.

    I hope this helps.

  12. Multiline Form Preset Line Height

    I would like to have a Text Field Property that would allow presetting of line spacing on multi line text fields. Currently, it appears that it can only be adjusted after there is already text in the field that would be submitted by the form filler.

  13. Change Defaults in Prepare Forms

    During the process of preparing a fillable form from a template, there are certain style attributes that have to be changed to meet my personal style preferences (e.g. font, check-box/radio-box options, form field attributes, and so on).

    Performing these changes on simple forms is not a difficult task but, when dealing with an extensive (e.g. multi-page, multi-field type form) template, this process can be pain-stakeingly tedious and result in lack of continuity.

    A feature which would allow the user to change the defaults in the Prepare Form feature so that the fillable form would be created with the user specified…

  15. Bug: Java Script Form Fields

    A Java Script Checkbox that makes a field visible or hidden based on the condition is not functioning properly. When first opening the form, the box does nothing. If I click on "Prepare Form" tool and immediately close, the button works as it should. If Adobe is closed and the form is reopened, the checkbox stops working again.

  19. Feature request: update to latest ECMAScript 2019 from current decade old JavaScript 1.8

    There has been two major releases since Acrobat 10, yet there has been no update to the JavaScript engine to support newer version of JavaScript since version 1.8 that came with version 10 of Acrobat, as stated on the latest Acrobat DC JS API reference. Please update the decade-old-JavaScript 1.8 to the latest ECMAScript 2019 in next major release of Acrobat. Thank you for your consideration.
