Option to unlink form fields when copying fields or complete page
When copying form fields, Acrobat automatically makes identical copies. If I copy a page and fill in the first page, the fields on the second page are automatically filled out with the same info. The only way to couteract this without having java scripting knowledge is to manually change the name of every field. This is frustrating when you have 100 fields that need to be identical on 20 pages, but filled out with different info. This should be a standard option. Preferrably while copying, acrobat could ask if you want the new copies linked with the originals or not.
This is as designed.
To avoid same name of form fields, please use “Right Click > Create Multiple Copies”.

This doesn't work when one is trying to create award certificates, and one has only one field which needs to be filled with one-hundred different names. What will work in such a case? I'm working in Acrobat Pro 2017.
