    Convert form fields to text fields or remove "fillable"

    ropoboy

      Hi,

       

      I would like to use form fields to mark variable parts of a PDF "template". Using the Java program pdfbox I plan to replace the content of the form fields with data, then mail the PDF to the user. Now I would like to get rid of the "please fill out the form". Can I remove the fillable attribute of the PDF document? How?

       

      Is there a better way to mark the variable parts of the PFD template? I have tried using plain text, but found out that when I am searching for text like $NAME$ it sometime works but at other times I get $, N, A, M, E, $ instead of $NAME$

       

      Thanks for helping,

      Roland
