Issues with FIll in and Sign Feature in Acrobat Pro
I am having an issue with the "Fill in and Sign" feature. When I open up a PDF that doesn't have fillable fields but I'm just trying to add text to the page, as soon as I hit the letter "A" key, I get an error message that says, "Currently there are no form fields in this PDF. DO you want Adobe Acrobat to detect form fields for you?" This only happens when I have the Single Key Shortcut Accelerators enabled in preferences. When I don't, I can type the text without an issue but when they're enabled it triggers this error when I hit the "A" key. Many other letters and numbers work without a problem but some of the other keys have issues as well. What's the deal?
This is totally ridiculous that you need to go into preferences, disable the hot keys, then go back to your document, type the text you need added to the page and then go back to preferences and re-enable the hotkeys which are supposed to be a convenience. What does it matter that you're adding text to a document that doesn't have fields. That seems like a glitch in the program. It allows you to type any of the letter, number, or symbol keys that aren't associated with shortcuts but doesn't let you type the 5-10 "hot keys". One function is definitely not related to the other.
I'm not looking to go through the extra step process to add fields. I'm just looking to drop text in various parts of the document and be able to sign and send in a seamless step process. I shouldn't have to turn off accelerator keys in preferences and shouldn't have to go to Prepare Forms tools to drop text boxes to fill out and then come back to drop signatures. The tool functionality is there and shouldn't conflict with single key accelerators.
