Hey Everyone,

 

I have a form with a lot (lot) of dropdown fields, is there an easy way to convert the current dropdown fields to similiarily named and sized text fields.

 

Or am I about to do a lot of hard manual copy pasting labor? 😛

There's no easy way to convert the type of a field. You can use a script to do it, but it basically requires removing the old field and then adding a new one in the same place, and in the new type. You would lose all scripts and other actions associated with the field in the process, though.

If that's OK with you then check out this (paid-for) tool I've developed that allows you to do just that: https://www.try67.com/tool/acrobat-convert-form-fields-type
