I am filling out a job application online. The application is in pdf format. It's an application that you don't have to print out, you just click submit when it is filled out. My problem is that any field that is labeled the same, the form automatically fills it in for me using the previous information. For example, the application asked me for my address. I typed it in and any other field that is labeled address filled in also. So when I got down to my previous employment information, it asked for the address of the company I worked for... and it was already filled in with my home address. When I changed it to the company's address, it changed my home address to that also. Help! I've tried everything.
It sounds like the form was built incorrectly. As you've noticed, if the fields have the same names, they will autofill with the same info. That isn't a setting on your end that you can change but rather one that is embedded in the PDF.
Looks like that the creator of the form doesn't test it.
You can print out the form and fill it.
