Change Defaults in Prepare Forms
During the process of preparing a fillable form from a template, there are certain style attributes that have to be changed to meet my personal style preferences (e.g. font, check-box/radio-box options, form field attributes, and so on).
Performing these changes on simple forms is not a difficult task but, when dealing with an extensive (e.g. multi-page, multi-field type form) template, this process can be pain-stakeingly tedious and result in lack of continuity.
A feature which would allow the user to change the defaults in the Prepare Form feature so that the fillable form would be created with the user specified and preferred settings would be of immense value and a great time-saving feature for those of us who practice this type of forms development.
Thank you, in advance, for your favorable consideration of this matter.
Thank you for your suggestions. We shall share this with our team.
Are you kidding? How is this not already a feature? Let's review the flow here:
1) I open a PDF doc that I want to convert to a fillable-form.
2) I choose Tools --> Prepare Form
3) I accept the option to scan for all form-field auto detection.
4) All form fields are created.
5) I change the properties on a single field and save.
6) I right-click on the field and choose "Use Current Properties As New Defaults".
Now what? All of the form fields were created in step 4! How is step 6 even the least bit useful? Who thought this up? Also, doesn't the word "Default" mean the application should default to these properties in the future? Not just on this document, but on all documents in the future? WTF?
I think this is a great idea. It is a bit annoying to have to select multi line in every box that I make.
