When creating a form with a date field, any entry in this field will be presented - if possible - in the american date format mm dd yyyy. The value of the day will be incremented by 1 !!! Whatever userdefined format I define (Switzerland dd.mmmm yyyy), an entry will be converted to a date like an american entry, so long the first value is not higher than 12. Example: the german date 5.7.2000, 5th July 2000 will be presented at 8. May 2000 (date format in the form d. mmmm yyyy), the germand date 20.10.2000 to 21. October 2000
Any ideas? Firefox ignores the date format an shows the entry as typed.
If you are using Chrome, Edge or Firefox to display PDF files, you are no more using Adobe Acrobat. You should ask that question in the respective fora of those software vendors.
Who is developping those PDF plugins? I thought it is Adobe?
Absolutely not Adobe. Yes, a few years ago. But Microsoft, Google, Firefox and Apple all decided to block Adobe's plug-ins and make their own. As you have seen, they are all different. None of them take forms very seriously. The popularity of PDF has almost killed PDF forms. You need to support your users to download and open in Acrobat Reader. They won't know how, and won't see why. And don't expect anything to work on mobile or tablet !!
Thanks! My client will love it...
