Form field that are not duplicates!

Post by tspitzer » Thu Feb 07, 2019 2:25 pm

I am looking to create a form (which I did), and then insert multiple copies of that form into a larger file (for different days). I am not able to do this without the form fields being duplicated so that changing one changes all of them.

Is there a way to do this?

Basically, I want to either duplicate a page with form fields, or insert a page with form fields but have them be different fields than a similar page, which was completed on a previous day.

Thank you.

Look at properties of each field and make sure Field Name (3rd from the top in the Properties pane) is unique.

Hello tspitzer, lev,

If you are looking to duplicate an existing page without perfectly replicating the form fields, you need to first extract the page from the document and save it to an easily accessible location (such as the desktop) then from the Organize tab in the editor choose "Insert pages". In the menu that appears, choose the extracted page, and the location you desire, and set the "Form Fields" option to "Copy with rename"
I hope this helps!
