2. Hi-lighted fields - OmniForm lets you hi-light the fields in =yellow. This makes it easier to see where you need to enter data. Is =this possible with Acrobat?
3. Automaticaly filling in fields based on the contents of other =fields. Can JavaScrip look at a check box or "read" the text in a field =and then fill in another field based on what it finds in the first =field?
4. Access to field properties - Can JavaScrip change the propeties of =a field, ie. make it hidden or make it visible? I've created some demo =forms in OmniForm that print "EXPIRED" when a certain date is reached. =The field is changed to visible when the free trial period is up.
5. Saving "records". OmniForm saves all the field entries as a "record' =and you can page through the previous forms by using arrow keys at the =top of the screen. For example, if I've filled in a form 10 times, I =can page through each of the past ten "records" to review the =information on those forms. Is there a way to do this with Acrobat? If =not, perhaps there is a way each form and its data can be easily saved =and retrieved later.
6. Menu to forms - In OmniForm I created a form that acts as a menu to =the other forms. It's composed of hyper links. The use starts with this =form and just selects the form from the menu. There are about 50 forms =and I've organized them to make them easy to find. Can I do this in =Acrobat?
7. Importing information from other forms. Real estate forms use a lot =of information that is repeated from one form to the next. For example, =an Offer form has the buyer's name, sellers' name and property address =and this informaiton is also needed on every addendum. Can I make =Acrobat look at the fields in another form and import that data?
Thanks for your help. Any recommendations or suggestions are welcome.
