I am using Adbobe Acrobat 8.0 Pro and have a form that I've converted over to pdf. I've done all the text fields but this form has several questions that are answered yes or no by "circling" the appropriate answer. Is there a way to use a circle over the yes/no answer without using a check box or does the form have to be redone and eliminate the yes/no answers requiring a circle?
Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble. As described you want to use the circle instead of check box for marking the answer in the PDF form.
If, the check boxes were originally used in the form which you have converted to PDF then please try the following steps and see if that works for you.
1. Open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat > Go to Tools > Prepare Form (This will bring the form in editing mode)
2. Remove/delete the check boxes and insert the Radio Button as desired and check

Thank you for your response but that is not the answer I was looking for. Check boxes were not used on the original form only the words Yes or No. The user was to circle with a pen or pencil the correct answer. I tried using the radio button but I can find a way to just use the "circle" of the radio button instead of the radio button filling in the circle. I've tried setting the "fill" color of the button to a transparent color but can find one, so when I use the radio button it hides the words Yes or No.
Thanks for explaining the issue in detail. please open the PDF form and go Tools > Fill and sign and use the use the dot option to mark the answers in the form and see if that works for you.
event.target.borderColor = (color.equal(color.red, event.target.borderColor)) ? color.transparent : color.red;
Sorry, It's a "No color" option:
