Hi, I try to merge documents some of which have forms in it. Acrobat DC "corrects" these forms with the effect that it writes the content of the first form into all the forms. Anyone has had this problem? Cheers, Marion

This is not a "correction", it is the logical result of having multiple fields in a single file with the same name. They will automatically have the same value. If you don't want that to happen you need to either:

- Merge the files as a Portfolio instead of a normal PDF file, or

- Rename the fields before merging the files so that they all have unique names, or

- Flatten the files before merging them, so they become static contents and don't overwrite one another.
