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.
We would like to know, how were you using “clear all fields” option? Was it a button or a menu item?
Reader cannot “Edit/Modify” PDF and hence “Reset Form” is not available in Reader. As long as you didn’t save the form (as you mentioned), you can use the following command in Acrobat Reader: File > Revert.
“Clear Form/Reset Form” can only be added via Acrobat. You can ask the author of the form to add a button using Form Fields Properties > Actions > Reset Forms.
And, if you are the author, you can clear it from Tools > Prepare Forms > More Options > Clear Form.
I hope this resolves your issue. If not, please share details for more information.
Literally have to pay for everything other than looking at the document
Removing this Clear Form function was really bad judgment on Adobe's part. We have a lot of people who are required to fill the same form on numerous occasions. Why was it removed?

I hope the below comment has resolved your issue.
Prepare Form, go to the little tools at the top and click on the arrow beside "hammer/wrench More". There's a "Clear Form" option.
