Adding Check Boxes

Post by 8fjrode3 » Mon Apr 02, 2018 5:06 am

I have a PDF form & need to add a couple hundred check boxes. Is there an easy way to do this? How can I change the default size of the check box created from Edit Form>Check box?

1) Add check boxes
Once that you have clicked the "Edit Form" button, followed by the "Check Box" icon (in the Forms toolbar) AND the "Keep mode" icon (= the pin in the Forms toolbar), you can continue clicking where-ever you need check boxes.
Via the View-menu > Show > Show grid, you can activate the grid display so that positioning your check boxes will be more easy.

2) Set the default size
Change the size of a check box, then right mouse click on that check box and click "Make current properties default".

Thanks for the answer willy,
Sadly he is right here too, there isn't really a quick way to add them beyond clicking a couple hundred times... sorry!
