Hi Karen,

Is this happening after signing the form? If so it might be related to the issue mentioned here:

I am in the process of taking all the forms we have in the office and converting them to fillable pdf forms that can be used in the field on iPads

Since the work computer does not have an acrobat version that allows me to create forms I have been saving the document out as a pdf and then opening that on my laptop using Acrobat X Pro 10.1

Some fields need to be drop down menus so I inserted those…..

PROBLEM: I didn’t want the drop down arrows box to print

SOLUTION: I found your solution you gave to someone on the over 990 days ago to (I’ve attached a screen snapshot of that conversation)

The pdf works fine but the “Hidden but printable” text field is not prining

1) I do have the print dialog set to print the document and the comments

2) I do have the text field at a lower tab number (dragged to be above the drop down menu in the field order)

3) I verified that there is no color settings on the field that would be “knocking out” the text

I don’t know what to try next

I thought creating the forms in a pdf program would be the quickest, most user friendly way to do this—was I wrong? Should I just make the forms in a word document and then save them as a pdf?

Need answer ASAP—Please help

Is there a way to put a drop down calendar in my fillable form? I don’t need an online form, just a form for staff to use and fill on their computers

Hi Michael,

This is frustrating. The problem is that when you’re in edting mode you can’t select both items. One thing you can do is to pull a guide out that then align both to the guide.

How to align a title with a text field?

I’m really frustrated as you can see and edit a text field and its title at the same time.
