I've been using fillable forms with out any issue up until yesterday.  Now everytime I open a fillable form, the fields blink not stop and the fields are also black while I type so I don't see anything I'm typing.  I've updated my OS and I've also uninstalled Acrobat and reinstalled it.  Neither helped.  Please help if you know how to.

This is it.  No one in my office has the same problem as me (and mine just started 2 weeks ago).  I have the newest Mac, with OS Big Sur 11.6

Still seeing this problem with Monetrey 12.1 and Adobe 2021.007.20099. It is very annoying and can't seem to find a solution to fix it.

Hi,

 

Yes, we tried this on multiple OS versions both win and mac along with the sample issue file shared on the thread, but were not able to reproduce this issue.

Can you please share a screen recording of the issue so that we can understand it better.

 

Thanks,

Gaurav Maheshwari

Wow - that's amazing... and annoying!  I hope a solution is found quickly.  I have some forms work coming up, and would like to NOT be up against this once that project begins.

Yes this blinking is the exact same issue I am having. I went in circles with support screen share yesterday, they kept trying to tell me it was realted to my specific file. But it happens in many files, and even if I create a brand new form myself in Adobe Acrobat it happens. It seems to get worse the more fields are present in the document.

Four screen recordings attached.

 

It gets worse with bigger forms, it gets worse when you move the mouse around, and it gets especially bad when editing text.

Yes, that is the exact issue that I am having on my forms. Thanks to all who are giving them this info, because it makes using a fill in pdf completely impossible on my brand new macbook air. I can fill it out on my Ipad without the blinking, but the laptop is useless.
