CS6: new buttons in forms, some problems

Jul 3, 2012 12:15 PM

For example, the new Clear Field button, a novelty in Indesign CS6, deletes the fields in all the pages of the document (a PDF)

If you are in page 5 and use this button all fields comprising pages from 1 to 4 are deleted.

 

How to avoid this?

    Camilo,

     

    The new forum action in InDesign CS6 you're talking about is not "Clear Field," it's Clear Form. It just invokes an Acrobat action which before you had to create in Acrobat: It doesn't delete fields. It clears any information you may have entered into the fields.

     

    Here's what it looks like in InDesign CS6, when I give a Reset button the Clear Form action:

    Here's what it looks like when I open it in Acrobat X Pro:

    So if I start entering data into the fields, then want to clear those fields, I click on the Reset button, which resets the form. No fields are deleted.
