PDF Form Creation: Special Options do not show in Drop Down fields.

    Asked on February 25, 2016 at 05:57 PM

    Hi - I am creating a PDF from an existing form through the tool.

    However, the drop-down lists are not filled out as per the HTML original settings.

    For instance, in my form, a drop-down list that has "US States" is downloaded empty or with the default options "Option 1", "Option 2", etc.


    Please advise.

    Thank you.

    Forms won't always be fully converted to PDF . Some fields cannot be included so far. That is the case for Dropdown Menu - Special options. So my recommendation would be to add the options in the general dropdown menu.

    Please read this general guide to know more about fillable PDF forms:
