    Poor performance when executing javascript in PDF forms

    richardellis

      I have created a PDF form using Acrobat Pro 9 for Mac that contains some javascript to calculate % discounts and variable VAT amounts.

       

      The problem l have is when the user populates the form. Filling in the form is very slow, as there is a noticeable 'lag' when entering a value and waiting for a field to update (based on the javascript code).

       

      Are forms created this way generally slower, or is there a way to optimize the performance of the form when it is saved from Acrobat Pro?

       

      Thanks
