Hello dear members!

Since some days I'm trying to create some nice PDF with forms.

Form fields should have default values and would be editable.

Many things tried, but I'm still have some big troubles on Android (on Windows PC it works).

1. Problem - after opening a document, default value is not visible.

2. Value is visible after click in filed, it is editable, but after release of this field the value visibility is gone.

3. Appearance looks totally different on Andoid and PC

I play a little and found out, on Windows PC theycan looks nearly same, if NeedAppearances is false or by some other gimmicks.

So maybe it is only problem with appearance streams (either if /DA is used on annotation widget) on Acrobat Reader for Android?

P.S. because I can change every piece of creating software (it's completelly under my control) I can do absolutelly everything in order to solve this problem.

On PC is Acrobat Reader DC is installed, on Android the current actual version from Playstore.

Some other question - how I can attach a PDF file to a forum message?

On Andoid after opening:

On Windows PC after opening:

Many thanks in advance to considering my question!

Hi Alex,

Sorry for the delay in response.

Would it be possible if you can share the form with us? You may create a link for the file using send & track here: https://cloud.acrobat.com/send

Click Add files > choose files from my computer

Select the file > create link. You can copy paste the link here in the forums or share it via private message by left-clicking on the person's user name and click Message.

Thanks,

Shivam
