Hi all,

I am trying to put two label images to two buttons on a PDF form using a FDF file. The first button gets the label image correctly. But the characters of the second label are all displayed on top of each other on the second button.

I am using a FDF file that contains lines like the following for referencing the two label images:

<< /T (button1) /APRef << /N << /F ( /Name (submitbtn)>> >> >>
<< /T (button2) /APRef << /N << /F ( /Name (cancelbtn)>> >> >>

I can get these two buttons directly from the browser with no problem. When merging the PDF file with this FDF file, button1 will always display the Submit button correctly. But button2 will have the characters in the "Cancel" word displayed on top of each other.

If I make button1 and button2 to have the same image, then both buttons display the images correctly.

Any ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
