I have a PDF form that I have put together today.
I'm a beginner with Acrobat, but have knowledge of JS coding.
I have lots of fields in the form
It all works perfectly in preview in Adobe Acrobat however when I save the document I lose all of these features and all of the textboxes become regular textboxes.
I am not doing anything special when I'm saving just going straight to the regular File > Save in adobe acrobat.
AND followup question - when I edit my PDF If I make my textboxes visible they are all blue boxes that you can click on and edit (or white boxes in Preview)
2. how can I make the textboxes invisible but still editable/printable. When I set the boxes to 'Hidden but printable' they disappear but I can't click on the boxes to edit them.
Do you fill the form with Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Reader?
I think that was it thank you. I think I had opened the file accidentally with Preview which was breaking it somehow ??
Because it would lose its abilities after that
I tried again very careful to go straight to acrobat or reader and it worked in both.
Preview is notorious. It not only ignores settings and fills forms wrong, it leaves them PERMANENTLY broken!
