Hi,

We have a PDF that we use to raise purchase orders. The value fields have formulas that calculate to two decimal places however when sending for signature the properties of these value fields do not carry over which causes the decimal places to be excessive. Is there a way to stop the value fields changing when we send for signature?

I've been pointing out for years that a PDF document should not change its appearance and values at the very moment you sign it.
It should at least keep the rounded values!

This is complete nonsense, but it doesn't seem to bother anyone at Adobe.

That's a shame, I don't understand why Adobe do not see this as a flaw that should be rectified. We are having to print to the PDF printer to remove the ability to type into the fields which then allows us to send the PDF for signature and it does not change the values.
