      How do I insert a reset button into a form I've created?

          The answer depends on whether you are distributing a Web form or a PDF form.


          In a Web form there is no way to insert a button, but there is a feature that will redirect the form back to a clean version of itself after a user clicks the Submit button.  This feature is enabled in the Options tab.  Go to Options-> Redirect URL and select the Reload the form option.


          For a PDF form you can add a button if you have access to Adobe Acrobat Pro.  What you will be doing is saving your form as PDF from FormsCentral without adding a submit button then editing the form in Acrobat Pro.  You will then import the PDF with the clear button back into FormsCentral and re-save the file WITH the submit button.


          Steps for how to save the PDF file from FormsCentral are at: http://forums.adobe.com/docs/DOC-3661

          I hope this helps.
