Hi. I am trying to create an Id cs5 form for import into acrobat pro 9. The form is a Nutrition label, so is very specific in FDA regulations. Therefore I cannot have underscores nor boxes appearing to indicate fields. Am I missing some work around here? Thanks for any help (if the answer is obvious, my apologies. Cannot find any information helping with this, and am relatively new to In design).
You can't actually create a live form in InDesign CS5. That's a new feature in InDesign CS6.
What you have to do is prepare the appearance of form (e.g., boxes which will become text fields) and use the Form Field Recognition feature in Acrobat 9 Pro to turn it into form fields.
There's a lot to learn. Michael Murphy did an Adobe Connect session which was recorded. You can watch it here (you need to have Flash Player installed on your computer to watch):
Thanks so much, Steve. I had a feeling this wasn't going to work! Will check out the Michael Murphy section.
