    PDF Forms: radio buttons looks like check boxes when form is converted to PDF.

    Asked by WebServ on January 20, 2017 at 09:31 AM

    I am working on a form that needs to be saved as a pdf for printing purposes and that form will eventually be read by OMR software.  Keeping bubbles and font is very important.  When I save the form as a pdf, it changes bubbles to squares and the font is much smaller.  It also shades in each answer choice. Is there a way to keep formatting exactly the same when saving as a pdf form?

    Thank you!
