    Fillable PDF: Checkbox for "Other" option on checkboxes not showing on Fillable PDFs

    Asked by cpgordon on June 04, 2015 at 12:57 PM

    I use 2 check-box forms and for each i allow the "other" text box option where the user can check that option and then fill in there own answer.  When i convert this to a Fillable PDF, the actual check box for that "other" text box disappears but the text box itself remains
