I have just purchased Adobe Acrobat Standard DC and am creating my first fillable PDF (using an existing Word document). My issue is that I don't appear to have all the tabs on Text Field Properties box. For example, I am trying to change the Date properties but it looks like I'm missing the "Actions", "Format", "Validate" and "Calculate" Tabs.
Below is a screenshot of the Text Field Properties I can see:
But having done some research, I should see the below Text Field Properties:
Any help on how I can see these additional tabs would be great appreciated!
You have created a Adobe Sign form. Want you use Adobe Sign?
Click on Tools - Prepare Form and then click on "More" at the right side of the window and then on "Revert to Acrobat Form". In the future, do not tick the box that says "This document requires signatures" when creating the form.
Thank you - this has corrected my issue and now resolved.
Hi CPLAK and thank you for your answer, so helpful!
Actually I was about asking the same question and fortunately I found your answer 🙂
But may I know the reason behind avoiding ticking on "This document requires signatures" please? Because the problem I got happened after I was trying to add the signature box?
Thank you so much for your kind help!
Because doing so converts the file to an Adobe Sign form, which has very limited functionality compared to a "normal" PDF form.
Thank you so much for your kind explanation, I really appreciate it!
Thanks for your answer as well. I was searching for why the new version of Acrobat didn't have the same options.
So, does that mean that you cannot have both calculated fields and a signature in the same form?
You can have both in a Acrobat form. Not possible in a Adobe Sign form.
