My version of reader was painfully out of date so I just updated it to Reader X. I am unable to fill out a downloaded PDF form with fillable fields. I get an I bar cursor and it allows me to select the field but when I type, nothing enters. I've checked the document properties and the author of the document did set the fillable fields to Allowable.
Any suggestions anyone? I'm pulling my hair out here.
A. Are you sure that there are fillable fields? There should be a bar at the top of the document that says as much.
B. Do you have the hand tool selected? If you do and mouse over the field THEN get an i-beam, then it should be fillable.
C. Even if security says that filling of form fields is allowed, the doesn't mean there are actually form fields.
Thank you! No, you are absolutely right. The bar is not present at the top. Its been so long since I've dealt with a fillable that I had forgotten that would appear. Dumb. Thanks so much for taking the time to respond to something that ended up being nothing.
