    Exporting editable PDF from InDesign

    wcervera

      I have built a few certificate templates in InDesign.

      My client needs just a few fields editable, things like the NAME of the person receiving the certificate, the date of issue, etc.

      I have made sure to make those fields just Arial typeface.

       

      I make these text boxes editable Interactive text boxes in InDesign.

      Then I export to a PDF and make sure that I am selecting to include Interactive Elements.

       

      When I open the PDF in Acrobat, I cannot just click on the text and start editing (which is what I thought would happen).

      Is there a way I can make it work that way?

       

      Instead I have been having to do it all in Acrobat.
