I have a new form that I created in acrobat. It has many form fields. All form fields show their default text except three form fields don't show any until I click into the field. The text field properties of these three form fields are identical to the text field properties of all other form fields that properly display their default text. How do I get these three fields to show the default text like all of the other form fields do?

Thank you for the replies, but in addition to the fields that didn't show default text, there were other fields that refused to adhere to the applied text formatting consistently. There were also calculated fields that did not always calculate. I recall similar problems when trying to use acrobat forms decades ago. So I give up once again. It's not worth my time to babysit this.
