Form properties does not hold calulations
It is not an idea, it is a bug.
When I open two exact same PDF files, one that has been created 2 months ago with formula to insert the current dat, calculate prices and costs, and a freshly created PDF to include the exact same calculations to the exact same named fields, I cannot get one single calculation to stick. Neither when adding them via hand, nor via export and import function. When I go to properties/calculations and user definted calcuations and add the copied text there, click ok enough times thennothing happens. when i look into the field I just edited, the formula is not there anymore.
What do I do wrong?

We regret you facing an inconvenience. Please share the test files(if possible) for us to investigate. You can share using https://forums.adobe.com/docs/DOC-7161.
Additionally, we would like you to please check and confirm if you are not using Apple Preview to open the saved PDF form. It is known to be very buggy and will corrupt a PDF form as soon as you open them
Another thing, I would recommend renaming your fields to a simpler names such as t1, t2 etc. It could be that the default names such as "FieldName.1" might be throwing the application off as you're using it to create individual fields.

Hello, the issue still remains. Did someone look at this? It looks like a bug to me. Am I the only one having this?
