I have a form that requires someone to type in a specific statement provided to them on the same form.  I would like to make the field prefill with that statement as soon as they begin typing.  This will ensure the statement is completed accurately.  Is this possible to set up, and if so, how?  I appreciate any help!!

Hi @Richard35059082c5p2

 

Hope you are doing well and thanks for reaching out.

 

Please go to Preferences (Ctrl,Cmd+K) > Forms > And set the Auto complete to 'Basic' or 'Advanced'  > Click OK and reboot the application.

Thank you!  A follow up question...how do I now go in to create the statement that I want to refill and set that up now that I've updated your previous instructions?

Hi there

 

The Auto-Complete feature stores any entries that you type in an interactive form field. Auto-Complete then suggests or even automatically enters responses that match your typing in other form fields. The suggestions appear in a pop-up menu, from which you can select a match. The Auto-Complete feature is off by default, so you must enable it in the forms preferences if you want to use it.

For more info. please check the help page https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/filling-pdf-forms.html
