I am creating fill in text fields. I have added verbiage to the tool tips in the properties box. The tip verbiage does not display. How can I fix this please? I have tried deleting and creating from scratch and that does not work.
How (and where) did you test it?
I saved it and opened it in Chrome Browser and Edge Browser. It allows me to type into it, and I also have a drop-down that works. It is just the tooltip that does not display on the text field. I don't have Adobe Reader to test and others who will use the form may not either.
This browsers doesn't supports tooltips.
Report this issue to the developers of the PDF plugins in those browsers. It has nothing to do with Adobe.
You will find many, many more limitations if you choose to not use Reader, and to not insist your audience use Reader. Consider using HTML forms instead.
I just installed Adobe reader and that does not work correctly either. I have to get this project done for a corporate client and this is torture! Can you recommend an HTML form that can be emailed, filled in, then returned?
You should completely forget about emailing forms. This is a disaster, and not suitable for any important or professional form. Forms should be submitted. Offerings like "Google forms" can take care of it all for you.
