I've created a document in Acrobat Pro 8 that does three very simple calculations. Two of those take one field entered by a user, "graduations" and does a simple bit of multiplication. It works fine when I set the fields up, but after saving and closing, both adobe reader and acrobat pro seem unaware that the calculations must be done. They still show up in the text field properties dialog box, but are no longer calculates, nor do they show up in Set Field Calculation Order, though they did upon creation.
Has anyone experienced this issue? Is there a fix?
So, the calculations are in the Calculate tab of the text field properties dialog, but they don't work, nor are they recognized by Acrobat?
The built-in and Simplified Field Notation both have problems with certain kinds of field names. This could be the issue. Field names should be short and not contain any special characters or spaces.
