I've been trying to print documents I've downloaded with fillable fields, but the fillable sections I've filled out come out blank. I've tried updating Acrobat; Repairing Acrobat; attempted to print the file as a PDF file then opening that file and printing it with no luck. I can get it to print at work, FedEx Kinkos, Office Depot, friends computers, ect. Even files I've had for several years will no longer print the fillable sections with the document. I cannot print as an image under the advance button as the option is greyed out. I have no idea what setting it is.

I am using Version 2019.008.20080. I've updated the app as of today, October 22, 2018.

As a workaround until you figure out what's wrong, you can flatten the form and print it. To do so, open the interactive JavaScript console by pressing Ctrl + J and enter the following line of code:flattenPages();exactly as shown above.Then press: Ctrl + Enterto execute the code. It will convert the fields to regular page contents to allow you to print. Note that this flattening process is not reversible, so only save as a different file if you want to save the flattened copy.

Has anyone been able to solve this problem simply? I am having the same problem. Some filled forms will print the contents, while others won't.

I can not. This was happening at the time I mentioned it. Most of my co-workers areworking from home during this pandemic, and I think not using the particular form (I can't remember which one it was). Sorry about that.
