All of a suddden I can no longer see the text that I enter into a fillable field using Reader DC.  All the text fields appear blank. If I try to type into one of these fields, nothing appears.

However, If I click on print(preview), all of my text shows up and prints.  I have been using this same template for several months without issue.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Reader to no avail. Does someone have a solution?    Currently Windows 10 on a PC.    Screenshot (111).png

Hi Jasonm, 

We apologize for not being able to reply to your query on time.

As explained above, the form doesn't shows up the filled information. Is it a only form in which you are experiencing this problem or all the fillable forms aren't showing data?

  • Please check with any other PDF form that has already data filled in it.
  • Screenshot shows that the you haven't Signed In the application. Please "Sign In" the application with your Adobe ID and check back.
  • You must check whether your Adobe Reader is up to date or not. Open Reader>Help>Check for update.

Regards,

Akanchha

I'm having a similar issue athough I am signed in and using a MAC.   My Adobe is up to date. 

 

After saving the form it appears blank when reopening.    It also will not let me modify the fields.   When printed, the original input is there. 

 

There are no restrictions on the form.

I'm having the exact same issue. I'm uses the latest version of Acrobat Pro DC, I open the fillable for, it shows the highlighted fields to fill in, when I hover over the field it shows the text icon, but when I type nothing happens. I'm on a Mac.
