Hi,

I have an Acrobat form with different areas to fill out depending on the choice of an option box. E.g.

( ) Area A

  if Area A clicked, you have to fill out the fields 1 and 2

( ) Area B

  if Area B clicked, you have to fill out the fields 3 and 4

 

Is there any possibility to fold and unfold the text and the fields 1/2 (resp. 3/4) depending on the value of the option box? I've seen such a few years ago in a pdf form...

Hi,

Can you confirm the version of your softyware and operating system?

You can create conditional fileds using scripts. This makes a field visible if a previous condition is valid, otherwise the field stays hidden. 

I use Adobe Designer (or called Forms previously) for this kind of work, as it allows for much more dynamic type of design than Acrobat.

Not really. Acrobat forms are not dynamic in this way. The only way you can achieve something like that is if either:

- The entire section to show/hide exists on a separate page, which can be spawned or deleted from a Template object, or

- The entire contents of the file are located in form fields, which can be moved around as needed, or

- The file was created using LiveCycle Designer, which does have such an option.

Hi,

I'm still facing the problem of dynamic forms. Now I have a text field that needs to expand if needed.

Live Cycle Designer isn't available anymore. It has been replaced by "Adobe Experienced Manager Forms" (AEM). Can anybody tell me experiences with AEM? Is AEM part of the Adobe Creative Cloud?
