    I am happy to see the "Create a PDF" is now working, however the e-mail fields and drop-downs are not functioning on the PDF.  Why?

    You should probably clone the form and then change those fields to text fields, and then get the PDF version.

    So the drop downs, radio and checkbox buttons, date fields, ect. will not convert, only text fields?  Are you working on a solution for those fields to be available?

    They were working previously. I noted this in our bug reports. Thanks.

    Is there any update on this bug? As of May 1, 2011, PDF converted forms don't save checkbox status. I used Mac OSX preview app to edit the PDF form.

    Hello,

    I am also having issues creating a pdf that is fully functioning: some fields are able to fill in, and some are not.

    Some of the text fields do not convert either. Also, the text fields are giving a font that is too large for the user to see when the field is filled in.

    Is this functionality working and I am doing soemthing wrong?

     

     

    Thank you

    Dave
