I am trying to create an order form for my company that has easily editable prices and item descriptions. If I create the layout of the form in InDesign and use the "buttons and forms" options, can I have a text box show up on my form as a price? The reason I want to do this is to simplify calculations. This way I only have to put in the pricing once, and can update it easily.
My thought process was to create a text box in InDesign, fill it in with a price, make it a text field in buttons and forms, and make it read only. I was hoping the price I put in InDesign would show through in the PDF, but it didn't.
Is this possible?
