Not all PDF viewers on iPad/iPhone support PDF forms.
For instance, if you receive an email message with a PDF form as an attachment, the PDF form will be opened in Apple's preview. But Apple's preview does not display filled data in the PDF form.
You can use the iOS "Copy to"/"Open in" feature to open PDF forms in Acrobat Reader for iPhone and iPad and view filled form data.
- For iPad, see How to open PDF documents in Adobe Acrobat Reader for iOS (iPad version)
- For iPhone, see How to open PDF documents in Adobe Acrobat Reader for iOS (iPhone version)
Please make sure that Acrobat Reader for iPad and iPhone is installed on your iPad.
Hope this helps.
Thanks. This does help. I was hoping to find a solution to see the pdfs incl. filled in data in GoodReader, but I think that was hoping for too much. Your advise does help however. (wish it would have been more clear in Adobe Acbrobat DC, that the form would have this deficiency on the ipad devise). all best
Hi, I am confused. Up to few months ago, I was able to receive (my iPad Air) as emailed forms (filled in text) and open in Good Notes, iBook or Adobe Fill & Sign. Now as mentioned above all filled in text are missing. So this must be new from Adobe. Now, I have to use Acrobat Reader on my iPad and 'Share It" as flattened and email to my self and open in Good Notes, iBook or Adobe Fill & Sign and have my customer sign digitally. Longer steps for something simple task. Can you advise if there are any quicker ways?
