Synced boudning boxes

Hi,

I have a problem with bounding boxes. In my document there seems to be synchronized bounding boxes, because when I type my name and address in one place in the document, it is automatically filled in another place and I can't change it because then the first field I filled in changes. How do I get rid of the sync?

You must mean form fields. Bounding boxes are something completely different. 

And Bernd is correct about changing the names, so if it's not working, then you are probably not changing the name.

Use unique names for the form fields.

Thank you!
