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.
Same exact issue here. Can't believe this is still happening. Adobe Acrobat is unusable in its current state, extremely annoying behavior. Looking for alternatives as we speak.
Macbook Pro 16" (2019)
2.6 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7
16 GB RAM
AMD Radeon Pro 5300M 4 GB
Acrobat version 2022.001.20112
Hi Acrobat team. Any solution to this yet?? I'm doing a Record of Seizures pdf form for Epilepsy patients and this flashing can trigger seizures. Please help.
Any updates? This makes my job so much harder... and more painful!
Having the same problem here on multiple Mac's none of the solutions posted here have helped.
Is there an update to the solution for this please? Someone? Anyone?...
I completely agree, since Adobe isn't doing anything soon figured I try and help out.
Hello Adobe Support, is there an update to this Mac issue? I've recently updated fillable forms we've been using for years. One with checkboxes and fillable text fields now flashes when used on Mac Adobe Reader or DC. Flashes blank when scrolling down the page or when selecting a field. Basically any interaction. No issues with PC use.
Is this a joke???? SO many people have had this issue for years now and still no fixes? Its a PDF! Adobe better hope people don't start to realize how much they pay for monthly for something that makes it more difficult than using a typewriter. Straight up disrespectful to not have provided any sort of solution for years.
It looks like the typical "why fix it if we don't have to" mentality. Until someone creates a competitive (or better) tool, they will either keep ignoring problems while raising subscription costs or they'll eventually go the route of Sears and Blockbuster.
This worked for me: Preferences > General, then under "Application Startup" click on the box to activate a check mark for "Enable native OS mode for optimal performance." Then press "OK" and shut down the Adobe Acrobat Application. Open the PDF fillable file and the blinking ceased. Your milage may vary.
