I am creating fillable applications for work. There are differect sections where some of the answers may be the same such as addresses: mailing and billing address maybe the same. I would like to setup a box that if checked will skip that fillable section and automatically move the individual to the next section to be completed. Does anyone know how I can create this in an Adobe Acrobat Pro DC fillable form?

You can set the check-box to make those fields read-only. They will then be skipped in the tab order.
To do that use the following as the Mouse Up event of the check-box:
this.getField("Field1").readonly = (event.target.value!="Off");
this.getField("Field2").readonly = (event.target.value!="Off");
this.getField("Field3").readonly = (event.target.value!="Off");
Adjust the field names in the code above to match the actual ones in your file, of course.

I have tried typing in the fields that you suggested, but I can't get the Mouse Up section to allow me to type in the information you provided. Would you mind providing me with step by step instructions? Or can you email me the instructions?
