Combo/ list box in Adobe Reader on iPhone 5

I have exported to an interactive PDF which contains radio buttons, text fields, combo boxes and list boxes. This form is to be viewed on an iPhone in Adobe Reader. All the form objects work except for the combo/list boxes. They appear and a selection can be made but the selection is not displayed in the box. I have tried to enlarge the box, thinking it was too small to display the text.


Can someone please tell me if there is a compatibility issue or a work around for this problem.

    Does it work on a desktop? iPad?

    I tested one of my interactive PDF forms, and it works fine in Reader on iPhone 5. Here is what a list box looks like:
