    PDF fillable form - why is the CLEAR FORM button not included?

    Asked by kappabioscience on April 28, 2015 at 09:07 AM

    Wondering how you clear form entries for the next person in the fillable PDF format, as the Clear Form button does not get included int he PDF format? I have this button on my original form, but not in the fillable PDF.


    So how do you clear form data for the next person?

    Several elements are not included in the PDF copy of the form.  There are certain things we either can't translate into a PDF or certain things that won't run in a PDF.  One of those unfortunately is the clear form functionality. 

    My recommendation would be to create another unfilled copy of the PDF and have the next person fill out the new copy.  You can have as many PDF copies of your form as needed.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
