    Masterpage form fields behave strangely in iOS Reader

    jeff_wilson

      I created a ~300-page pdf journal for a client. The target device is Acrobat Reader on iPads. I set up the form fields in Indesign on the master pages and the form fields are named "mulitx1620.Page xx" where xx is the page number.

       

      During testing, when I enter text into "multix1620.Page 1" in Reader on iOS 9.0.1, every form field named "multix1620.Page xx" gets filled in.

       

      Is there a fix for this that doesn't involve renaming thousands of form fields by hand?

       

      Is there a way to make formField.name writable in javascript? Is there a tool I can use to rename form fields with regex?

       

      Thank you for your help.
