    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.

    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?
