I have a form I have set up, for labels, that is 18 up on a sheet.

I have to cnahge the names of some of the fields - is there a way to use a 'find and replace'  function to change them all, without affecting any of the other properties?

No. You can't rename fields in a mass way in Acrobat, unless you use a script, but then you lose such properties as Format, Validation, Calculation, etc.

You can do the latter using one of these (paid-for) tools I've developed:

I finally got it, I had to go though all 18 of these, extend the width of the text boxes for the 2nd & 3rd lines of text & then change what was showing under the Options tab for those fields. If I tried changing anything under the General tab, the text stayed there when I hit the 2nd radial button for my NoPrint option.

I set thjs up for some die cut labels, that are 18 up on a sheet. I fill in the info, as needed & then turn off all the other labels on the sheet, using my Print or NoPrint buttons as needed.
