How can I auto-fill a user's name (or abbreviation of their name) in a text box? I know how to do the auto-fill for a date, but can't get the JavaScript to work for a user's name. This would be when the form is opened. I'm using Acrobat Pro DC XI.

I'm trying to make it pull from a person's Windows login account. I am trying to re-create a form in Adobe that I have in InfoPath, but I actually don't need this functionality anymore. Thanks!

OK, that's possible, but it would require you install a script on the local machine of each user. Is that feasible in your case?

I don't know at this point, and I won't be pursuing this further since I don't need this functionality anymore. Thanks.
