In form editing mode, have you tried "Forms >Edit Fields > Place Multiple Fields" after creating the first row?
Thanks for your reply.
On selecting the entire row, I get the error message; "Cannot create multiple copies of this selection. One or more fields in the selection have duplicates in this form."
However, after creating a "test" radio group containing only one radio button, it does provide duplicate radio groups for me after pressing "place multiple fields" - this is what I want, however I need four radio buttons in each group duplicated as opposed to one. I shall keep on trying however, and will let you know of any improvements.
You can copy one row to the next row and then remame the fields in that row by selecting each button individually or by opening the 'Fields' navigation pane and renaming the fields there.
You were so close... To solve this issue you have to think in the opposite direction. You have to create the first button of all the questions (the first column), and THEN you create the buttons for the other "answers". Here is how it goes :
1. Create the first button. Give it a name with NO NUMBER (Acrobat will give numbers), and set its value. The name could be "Question", for instance.
2. Select the button, right-click, and choose the command to insert many fields (not sure what the exact phrasing is, I work in French) -- This is where you got to...
3. In the "insert many fields..." dialog box, under "Copy fields vertically", insert the number of questions you have, plus 1. In your example, this would mean 5+1, so 6 buttons vertically (The reason for this is that Acrobat will give numbers to each button starting at zero and we'll get rid of zero as it is not very user-friendly!). Under "Copy fields horizontally", choose 1.
4. Once the vertical series is created, delete button "Question.0", keep "Question.1" to "Question.X" ("X" being your last button).
5. Distribute the buttons from that first series vertically, as you want them
6. Select all the buttons in that first series, then use CTRL+SHIFT and drag it to the right to make a full copy of the series.
7. Once the copy is made, and while the buttons in this second series are still selected, choose "Properties..." to set the value of this second series (value of buttons in the 2nd column)
8. Repeat for all the other columns!
That's it! Took me a while to figure it out, but is sure saves time!
