You need to set the fields calculation order correctly, via Tools - Prepare Form - More - Set Fields Calculation Order.

Hi @try67  and all,

I come back to you for an other problem. 

If I open the pdf file with calculations by browser plugin (Firefox), when I write something in the first field, compare 1€ on all the calculated fields.

Is it a bug of the plugin or my fault?

thank you

Make sure the fields have unique names. If they do, it's a bug of the plugin.

I would like to update the steps as the menus have changed as of Jun 2024. 

  1. Under All Tools select Prepare a Form from the menu. (you might have to click "View more" to see it)
  2. Now on the right side of your screen, you should see the Fields panel, click the Three Dots button for "options" 
  3. This is where the Set Field Calculation Order is now located.

 

I've attached screen shots for reference.
