I created a form in InDesign cs6 that contains check boxes. I exported the form as an interactive pdf.
When I check the boxes and print the form it only prints the check mark and not the boxes around the checkmark.
The unchecked boxes print just fine.
This is probably something silly, but I can't figure it out!
I'm not even sure if this should be fixed in InDesign or Acrobat...
If it's not a bug, I'd say this is related to one of the many settings in Adobe Reader/Acrobat.
I never used such before, but I made a test how it turns out and it freaks me out what crap Adobe's programmers did here:
Original in Indesign CS6 Exported PDF in Acrobat, unchecked Exported PDF in Acrobat, checked
Other check box types are even worse!
Checked (default), not hovered Unchecked, not hovered
Only when checked AND hovered, it looks normal:
|Checked (default), not hovered||Unchecked, not hovered||Unchecked, hovered||Checked, hovered|
Anyway, when printed on paper both come out as expected. Like top left and bottom right
