Field names missing

I have forms that need to be filled out. I created this so I can stick the form in the printer and all the information gets printed in the proper location. Trouble is, as you can see, the field names are not showing up. They show up when I edit fields but not after I exit editing. They are all named so I'm sure there must be a setting. Under field properties I have Form field set as visible but that must not include the text. Is there a way for the text to show up so when I'm filling out the form i don't put the wrong information in the wrong box? Adobe Acrobat XI Pro.

No, they don't. Field names are a property of the field, not printable content.

You can use a simple script to set the field names as their default values, if you want them to be printed (and shown on screen), though.

I just wanted the names to be visible but not printable. I only wanted what I typed in the box to print. If I typed nothing it would print nothing.  I found a different way to do what I want. Thanks for the response though.
