I would like all the fillable fields in my document to be filled in with a light color and labeled with the title of what information needs to be filled into certain spaces.
Is there a way to label a fillable field so that it is somewhat transparent? That way the person filling out the form knows what to type in that slot?
I am working with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC (32-bit).
Yes, this is possible. You can use also the tooltips.
It's possible, but requires using a script. However, it won't work for fields that have a Format setting, such as Date fields. I also recommend using tooltips for this purpose.
Place the "Help" text you want displayed in the field tooltip, then place this script into the Custom Format
if(event.value == event.defaultValue)
event.value = event.userName;
event.target.fontColor = ["RGB",.75,.75,.75]; // light grey
event.target.fontColor = color.black;
