I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro version 11 and I prepared a PDF Form using FormsCentral. I have got two queries please.
1) in my PDF form, there are one block of fields that is repeated 5 times. Is there a way to hide the blocks of fields that are not necessary; i.e. if the applicant does not need more than one block, the four other blocks do not appear on the pdf form ?
2) can datas entered in various fields on page 1 of the PDF form be used on other pages; i.e. can the info introduced by the applicant in various fields be copied in other pages automatically because reply(ies) is(are) the same on page 5 for instance?
If the Adobe "standard" does not allow the above actions, which product should I use ?
Many thanks in advance for your help.
For #1 - No, there is no "Show/Hide" available for the PDF from FormsCentral, it is supported in the web/HTML form, but not for PDF. The only tool that does accomplish this in PDF is "LiveCycle Designer". LiveCycle creates a different type of form than FormsCentral and if you created a form there with this type of "Show/Hide" functionality it would not be compatible with FormsCentral.
LiveCycle Designer was available with Acroat X but not Acrobat XI - however it is still available to users who have purchased Acrobat Professional XI:
For #2 - Also a "no", not through FormsCentral. However, this is something you should be able to do in Acrobat Pro by opening the PDF in Acrobat and further editing the form there. You would want to get additional help for how to make the changes from the "Acrobat Forms Forum" here: http://forums.adobe.com/community/acrobat/forms
