Topic: Creation of Duplicate Fields
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 118900

I am using v6.0.2. I have been sent pdf files and am given the task of turning them into writable forms for our users.

I somehow seem to create multiple DUPLICATE fields (one laying ontop of the other) without realizing it. The only way I suddenly realize I have a problem is when I go back and test the form and find that it does not tab to the location I expect it should, or the text that I have entered while testing the form appears to be bold. At that point, when I go back to view the fields, if I highlight the area where the font appeared too bold, and hit delete, a "hidden" field is still there, and the font that I used for testing appears to be non-bold again (normal).

This is not happening ALL of the time, but probably about 25% of the time. I can't figure out when this is happening, or what mis-key I must be doing to cause this.

Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
~Brenda

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
