Workaround 1 has me saving the file as an “Encapsulated PostScript file”
But I get twenty odd files – one for each page.
Workaround 2 printing the form to Adobe PDF printer
I’m running MacOS Monterey and there is no Adobe PDF Printer.
After doing some research I think the steps in the pop up outlined above actually refers to actions Windows users must take and there is no Adobe PDF Printer these days on Macs (but shout me down it I’m wrong.
Instead Mac users must Save as PDF to get rid of XFA features.
After saving as a PDF, reopening the file – I’m still unable to add stickies.
I’m two hours into working with Adobe DC and already want to shoot myself in the face.
And to make matters worse the PDF I’ve trying to edit is for my divorce.
Please rescue me from the seventh circle of PDF hell!
Edit and convert PDFs
There is no tool to convert to a regular PDF. And the tricks don't work on Mac, where there is no PDF printer. Just don't add sticky notes. The creator of the form knows you can't do that. If it's for your own use, perhaps have a master PDF with notes, and add the form as an attachment.
