I have a PDF form for doing estimates for my business. I e-mailed it to myself and open it up on iPad. Then I selected open in Adobe.
I can enter data in any of the fields just fine but when I move to the next field the data I previously entered disappears unless I go back to that field to edit.
I tried e-mailing a document to myself and when I opened it up on my laptop computer the data fields are empty regardless of whether I highlight that field.
Can anybody help me out with this problem?
Thank you, Bob Kroth
If you are opening in the desktop Adobe Reader, try turning field highlighting off in the desktop Reader. For some forms, we've discovered that the field highlighting in the Desktop (windows/mac) reader covers the data entered. If you can share the file you are having this problem with to email@example.com, I can verify that this is the problem. Thanks for your question!
I believe I received your form. Is it "jadon 4-12.pdf"? If so, I have been unable to reproduce the problem. Can you share what program you are using to view the PDF when you open it?
I noticed that with this form, I had to disable field highlighting on the desktop Adobe Reader to view the data. This is an issue we are hoping to fix in an upcoming release of the Mobile Adobe Reader.
I found that field and when I change it, I see the change on hitting "next". However, I did notice that it took about half a second to a second to show up. The delay worries me, does it NEVER show for you?
Thanks for your patience and your help.
Well I'm not sure what doc you were looking at but here is a similar pdf.
I have both Adobe and Scan soft PDF software. If you mouse over the area
where the address would be typed in and click on that area the text that is
there will appear. When you click to new field text disapears. I typed in a
price for mowing and when you click on that field you can see the price. I
have also tried this on Adobe for iPhone and have the same problem.
Sorry if I'm not explaining this clearly.

You can send the form to firstname.lastname@example.org with instructions on the specific field you are having problems with. I was not able to see the problem on your previous form once I chose to disable field highlighting. You can do this by clicking on "Highlight Existing Fields" in the purple bar at the top of the document.
If this doesn't work, please contact me via email and we can arrange a time to discuss the issue in "real time".
Thanks for your help with this.
Am I in the wrong forum? I was trying to view and edit the document I had
sent you on my iPhone 4s using your updated Adobe software for iPhone. I do
not see way to turn off highlighting on my iPhone? Bob 612 889-5720
