FWIW, the most recent version of InDesign (CS6) allows you to specify various types of form fields, so you're not limited to just buttons.
For more info, see: http://www.pdfscripting.com/public/111.cfm
Be sure to restart Acrobat after installing the script.
George- thank you so much for your reply!
I'm using CS5.5, so unfortunately at the moment I don't have that option.
The following 2 screenshots might illustrate better what I'm trying to explain:
You'll see that when I try the user path, there is no Library folder under my username. When I try the app path, there is no "Adobe Acrobat Pro.app" folder under "Adobe Acrobat X Pro."
I believe the Library folder is hidden by default. Do a Google search to get more info about unhiding folders on OSX.
That did the trick!!
Thank you so much!!!!! It's going to make my day so much easier!!!
