Hallo!
I am using acrobat to ctreate a resumé template that have to be filled by the candidates. I am still new and I am wondering if exist a field that I can add to it that allowes the candidate to add a new block to insert more informations if the fields that I created are not enough.


Is that possible?

Only as an entire page. To do that you would need to convert your page into a Template object and then you'll be able to spawn new copies of it using a script.

This does not look like a PDF file... But if you convert the entire thing to a PDF page and add form fields to it then you could duplicate it as a whole page.

The first step is to create the file with the fields. Then you would need to convert it to a Template and add a script to spawn pages from it.

If you're interested in hiring someone to do it for you (for a fee) feel free to contact me privately via [try6767 at gmail.com] to discuss it further. En ik spreek ook Nederlands, als dat helpt :-).

You can only spawn entire pages. Fields can be added using a script, moved or made visible/hidden (among other things).
