So I need to have a PDF File Template to fill in the text myself on a weekly base.

So 1 PDF File with 52 Pages.

I found out about the great option to create an PDF form. I converted my Word template to a PDF Form and everything works great exept:

After Acrobat auto-created my Fill In Textboxes and I dublicate the 1 page, the Text boxes are synced to each other through the pages.

So when i edit "Monday on page 1" the text also appears on page 2.

Is there a way to delete the connection between pages?

As you can see the text from page 1 gets transferred to page 2

Rename the fields on page 2 so that they have a unique name.

Yea i just fiddled around and found that solution.

I just wonder if there is a faster way. When i dublicate the page acrobat automatically sets "#2" on the end of the name but that doesnt seem to be enough.

I would have to rename 20x52 so 1040 text boxes by hand, i think i would pass on that one if i cant automatically change it ':D

 

Do you know if that works?

There are other ways of doing it, yes, but they all require some scripting know-how.

Or you can use an existing tool, like these (paid-for) ones I've created:

You can create a template page and spawn this page with the rename option.
