  2. Renaming Date Field Changing it to Text Type

    1. Renaming Date Type field changes it to Text Type

    Issue: Renaming any Date type field when using "prepare form" in Adobe Pro, causes the field to be changed to a Text Type field. This causes issues with errors when uploading/downloading the form.

    1. Replication Steps:
      Open the Sample Document attached in Adobe Pro
      Click Tools > Forms & Signatures > Prepare Form
      This should load the open form into the prepare form tools
      Right click on the "Date" Field
      Click 'Rename Field'
      Change the name to: Date (no "afdate" suffix)
      Hit Enter
      See in the right menu, the field…

  3. Combo box and list box batch import:

    Hello, I was wondering if you all could make a system for Excel or CSV data to be imported into interactive elements like combo boxes and list boxes. Its a real pain to manually input an array of items one at a time, and also not have the ability to edit them in their place. The current process requires deleting an element in the list, and retyping it when updating the list. Imagine if having to make a combo box that included all 50 states or capitals of every country.
    I also ask for this a feature in Indesign, but…

  4. importXFAData stopped working with latest Acrobat Pro DC update

    Using PDF XFA forms created with Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES4. Data stored in a Microsoft Access database is converted to an XML file and then imported into a blank PDF XFA form using importXFAData. My workgroup has been using this feature for over three years with huge success/satisfaction. With the recent update, the xml import stopped working leaving the PDF form fields blank. Any work around or update planned?

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. Creating fillable PDF (Prepare form) - add image compatible with Mac Preview

    I am creating a fillable PDF and the users need to be able to add an image. I tried using "Add an Image Field" with Prepare Form, but the users are unable to add the image when they open the PDF in Mac Preview. Most of our clients use Mac Preview to open and fill PDFs we need to make this compatible!

  8. 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

  9. 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…

  10. Create Multiple copy of fields

    When I use the Create Multiple Copies command, the Overall Size values are calculated differently depending on the zoom % of the document I’m working on. Which makes predictability of the width / height area completely impossible.

    It’s also has something to do with the resolution of the monitor. On my MacBookPro, I need to setup my Zoom to 66% to get a practical math logic. On my Old Surface Pro 3, it need to be 43.2%.

    This juggling of math make this feature really close to useless.

    Tell me, what is Acrobat's mathematical logic here? And how can I…

  11. Javascript document method .bringToFront() not working in MacOS

    For several months now the document method .bringToFront() is not working in MacOS. I have tested the issue with the same forms in the Windows environment and find that .bringToFront() works as intended in Windows.

  13. Print one PDF multiple times on Single Sheet

    I'd like to be able to easily print one pdf multiple times on a single page without having to duplicate and merge the pdfs before printing. For example on the Preview program on a mac, its super easy to do this with a click of a button. No extra steps of duplicating and merging. Thanks for considering, Please please update!!

  15. Adobe Acrobate Doesnt work with Fillable forms of the LiveCycle Type

    It is completely mind numbing that this product doesnt work with Live Cycle Designer files. These are the PDF files that are used by the IRS. So I can not fill in a form from the IRS and save it. BUT Apple Preview works perfectly fine on these files. So my FREE PDF viewer works better than this Adobe PDF P.O.S. What a waste of a product.

  16. 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

  19. Changing kind of many fields after autoscanning

    After the automated scanning of forms many fields have the wrong kind.
    Where is the function to change kind of many marked fields then?

    Everyone who created a form, will have a need or use of such function.

    Please integrate soon.

  20. Renaming of (copied) formular fields

    The function to automatically and customizeable renaming of formular fields is needed!!!
    F.E.: If you want to deploy 500 checkboxes - you have to copy them and change name by clicking every box or deploy them one after another. This is absolute horrible.

    It would be very helpful to have a function which can do this:
    - Mark the fields you want
    - Change name with a given name and f.e. growing numbers for the marked fields.

    Please integrate soon. It wastes so much time.
