I am using Acrobat X. I accidentally selected the (bubble?) to the left of "No" in a form I'm filling out. How do I clear it? Thank you!

If it's a radio-button you can't "un-select" it directly. Hopefully there's a "Yes" option... If there's only one option then the designer of the from did a bad job. Using Acrobat you can reset it without having to reset the entire form, though, by running this command from the JS Console:

this.resetForm(["Name of field"]);

Replace "Name of field" with that field's name, of course.
