I am using the Organize Pages feature in Acrobat DC to add additional documents to an existing PDF. When organizing pages, I am getting a pop up that says "Any form fields that have the same name in the merged documents are now merged into one field. If you want the values in these fields to be unique, then you need to create a PDF portfolio

 

i was able to do this on Friday and now it get the pop-up message above. this is my job to combine files with the same fields . i have never had this pop-up show up. how to undo the update? I can not have a portfolio it will not work.

Maybe the message didn't appear, but the same issue would have happened earlier. Fields with the same name in a file will always have the same value, so if you combine two files that have fields called "Text1" you will lose the value of one of them, as it will be overwritten by the other one. This has always been like that.

Change the field names before you combine the files.
