I created a form, checked "Include Help Text" in one of the field properties, typed the help text into the box, then added a message to the introductory text for the field instructing recipients to click on the question mark for assistance, then I saved the form. In the resulting PDF the question mark and help text do not appear. Is there another, less obvious way to include this property?
The way help text works in HTML forms vs PDF forms is different. In the PDF form the help icon does not appear. To see the help text you hover your cursor over the field and a tooltip with your text will appear.
