I am not sure what i am doing wrong here .....
1. Create a stamp in excel
2. Create custom stamp in Adobe using the excel file
3. Go to the Adobe stamp file, locate the stamp, and add in form fields
4. Save. Exit all Adobe.
5. Open a PDF and use the new stamp - the fields i added dont show up so no text can be entered and checkboxes cannot be selected. I understand that when i created the stamp it will be a flat file, which is why i added the form fields in the Adobe stamp file. I just dont understand what i am doing wrong here.
Thanks for your help!
I also want to be able to select checkboxes, something special there too?
Before you apply the stamp you must fill the form fields.
Dynamic stamps don't work like that in PDFs. You have to fill them in (using a script) before they are applied to the page. Once applied the fields in them become flattened and can't be edited any longer.
