There is nothing wrong. The first screenshot is from a Adobe Sign Form, the second from a Acrobat Form.
No I am only using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC
When you check the box - "This document requires signatures"
The text field options are circled below - only 3.
When you DO NOT check the box - "This document requires signatures"
You get 8 tabs in the text field options
I want to format some of my text fields, but the format is only available if you do not check "This document requires signature"
My document requires signatures and I want to be able to format my text fields with the dollar sign. "$"
Don't create a Adobe Sign form. Create a Acrobat form and add a signature field.
Just for the record, Adobe are a bunch of flipping MORONS. This feature is so inadequately described it's infuriating. This is seriously the most pathetic example of user UNfriendliness out there. Adobe needs to do a WAY better job at explaining what this feature actually does.
I'm also not finding the difference between various types of available forms very clear... is there any documentation regarding which situation calls for which type of Acrobat form? A matrix of the features missing/available to each of the form types would be handy.
I am very frustrated by this as well....I want to be able to set up a doc to require a signature (Adobe Sign form) but have those extra options for formatting the fields (available in Acrobat form) so I can set up $$ fields that auto calculate totals & designate these fields as prefill so the receiver can't edit them after I send it on & I can record my official signature before sending as well.
I have it currently set up as an Acrobat form so all of that prefill & auto calculation can happen but then every time I want to send a new statement (which is often) I have to go in & do all the prefill stuff, then I have to edit all of the fillable field properties to set them as read only which is a pain in the a$$ & makes for extra time spent. I don't understand why Adobe sign form can't have the same options for preparing your form or why Acrobat form won't let you set some fields as 'prefill"????
Adobe Sign is a special way of handling forms. They are sent to Adobe's servers for processing. Adobe Sign forms are limited: you just cannot use these extra things with them. You have to choose BETWEEN using Adobe sign and using these extra features. Why Adobe Sign rather than a local signature?
Adobe have a pattern of adding weird kinds of alternative form and making it seem you need them, when you don't. Adobe Sign forms are at least the third example of this.
