I'm new to Adobe Forms and was curious if there was a way to leave text in a text field that can be used as an "example".
For example, can I somehow insert MM/DD/YY in a date field to indicate to the user the date format they must use that will disappear when they type in the date.
In your specific example, if using a Date field, the format is enforced when a user tries to move on to the next field.
You could include Help Text... but that will only help if people click on the ? symbol to learn more. You could also insert descriptive text in your field label, or, you could insert separate Formatted Text fields near those fields you feel need some additional information.
I hope that helps,
