Everyone,

  I have a jpg image I want to add to the PDF Form.  I am running Adobe Acrobat X and I do not see how to add it to the form using this version.  I have found documentation on it, but when I go into the Forms and do not see the icon to click on and then insert the file to it.

  Am I missing something here?  Plz help me to understand what I am doing wrong.  Thanx in advance.

You can certainly do it with your version. Add a button field, set its Layout to "Icon only" and then set its MouseUp action to execute the following code:

event.target.buttonImportIcon();

However, the end users of this form will only be able to select a JPEG image file if they have Acrobat (any version) or Reader DC. Earlier versions of Reader will only allow them to select a PDF file, or it won't work in them at all.

If you want to add an icon to a form button, you can do it in X.

If you want your USERS with Reader to be able to add an icon from a JPEG, when filling the form, you and your users need to get up to date; this was added around 8 years after your version.

I have communicated this information incorrectly.  I just want to add a jpg image on the form, like a company logo to it.  It is in jpg format and I want to place it on the form only.  My apologies for incorrectly stating this.

I did not see that option.  How can I get the option?  Is there a setting I have not done.  Looked for a setting, but do not see one.  Thanx in advance.

Click the little menu item at the top-right corner of that window. Are there any options not selected in it?

There was some not active.  I turned them all on.  Good information/options to have.  I am using Adobe Acrobat X Pro.  I thought about your previous response of "You can certainly do it with your version. Add a button field, set its Layout to "Icon only".  So I set it as you stated here, then in the Options Tab, I Choose the Icon to be the jpg file.  Then I "Locked" it.  Seems to be working fine now.  Thanx in advance.

I don't remember its exact location but I believe there was an Add Text & Image tool in Acrobat X...
