Hello all!

Reposting with different title hoping to get help. Cannot figure this out!

In the attached document I get an error in Pac3 for a Save and Reset button on page 1 of this document.

 

The error is: "Widget" annotation not nested inside a "Form" structure element PDF

Can someone please tell me how to fix this?

I've tried:

  • Deleting the tags and the buttons and putting them back
  • Deleting the buttons (this makes the ones on page 2 then have the same error); when I re-add in the buttons the error moves back to page 1 buttons
  • Having a colleague do the same things.
  • Using Foxit instead of Adobe (which oddly is the only way I can select options on the "Reset" button to select what fields I want to reset).
  • I don't want to restart just to have the same issue at the end.

 

PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Thank you anyone who can help!

Cyndy

Can you confirm what was the source document that produced this PDF?

 

Also, does the save button using any type of document-level script or an Acrobat built-in feature?

 

You also mentioned that on Foxit you're able to use a reset button, but your screenshot shows a button labeled as "Save".

 

Do all the button widgets assigned a unique field name in that PDF?
