Hi, I have a medical pdf form. There are text fields, check boxes and digital signatures on the form. I have an issue with body chart, where patients required to indicate their pain areas. Please see image below and let me know what possible ways are availabe there in acrobat to complete this form?
What are the easiet way to indicate pain areas in this body chart.
I just noticed that you posted after I submitted my reply.
The more the merrier! And each one might have a different solution to this challenge.
I used a single button field over the entire area to add a Stamp at the point where it is clicked, and a separate button to clear all the added marks (since you can't manipulate them directly because they overlap with the main button).
That is pretty neat!
I just tested it in my Android and it seems to work very good in Reader too.
The text callouts in my Reader mobile app seemed to work too using your PDF.
I'm surprised to hear it works on Android...
I spoke too soon.
If you use checkboxes, and dropdown menus it works.Using checkbox worksand so does a reset button. Even custom calculation scripts.
The stamps with annotation over an image works beautifully on Acrobat and Reader.
NOTE: For some reason when I commit edits with the Reader mobile app it flattens the PDFs . This does't happen with other PDFs that I've downloaded from my PC to the mobile device though.
Using checkboxes in this example is great because you can switch the check mark to an "X", place them around all around the diagrams, and even assist the users with tooltips that will pop when the users hover the mouse pointer over a checkbox.
You can also provide the users with more answering options using dropdown menus.
This makes the experience of using your PDF more interactive and intuitive .
I am currently assisting another user with something similar.

Can't the patients uses the Comment tools?
Pencil, square, circle…
This code activates the pencil tool:
This code deactivates the pecil tool:
Unfortunately, When the x's are marked on the bodies they do not print out on the forms. Is this possible to make it so the x's print out when we print the forms
Be sure to print using the "Document and stamp" or the "Document and markups" option:
Actually, I have added this to a form that also has fillable fields/
That doesn't matter. Use the option JR has shown and it will print both.
