Hi,

 

is there a way to add multiple elements when creating a Dropdown-List?

I do have an excel sheet with street names and want to create a Dropdown-List with this data.

 

I maybe found a solution at the Internet but i am missing some Tabs in the properties:

(german options) Aktionen, Format, Validierung, Berechnung

 

Thank you.

Try the forum for Acrobat.

Does you use a Adobe Sign form?

yes, i use a Sign form. Ive added a new Dropdown-List but i am missing some Tabs in the properties.

Maybe someone has a solution for my problem to add more multiple entrys at once or even use an excel sheet (with street names) for adding to the Dropdown-List.

I know how to do it in a regular Acrobat form. Not sure if it will work in an Adobe Sign-enabled form, though.

I would recommend you only convert the file to this format after you finished creating it in Acrobat.

Basically, you would use a script. Something like this:

this.getField("Dropdown1").setItems(["", "Option 1", "Option 2", "Option 3"]);

The first item in the array is the default value.

 

If you want to import the data from an external file you can use this (paid-for) tool I've developed:

The tabs are missing because this is an Adobe Sign form. To revert it back to a normal file go to Tools - Prepare Form and then click on "More" at the right side of the window and then on "Revert to Acrobat Form".
