I had radio button options that need to be required before the user can submit. It used to work but now it stopped! The text fields are still required and working, but the radio buttons (even though should required) are not working. The user can submit without them! How do I fix this?

Hi Mzbree,

Open the PDF form in Adobe Acrobat DC and click on Prepare form.

Then select that radio button and double click on that. In the Radio button properties window, check if the box for "Required" is marked or not.

If not, mark the box for required.

If that is not the case, then would it possible to share that PDF from with us?

You may share the file in private message if you do not share the form on public form. How Do I Send Private Message

Use the steps provided in the following link to share the PDF. How to share a file using Adobe Document Cloud

Let us know if you need any help.

Regards,

Meenakshi

I have a similar issue, the radio buttons show as required at first but when the user tabs through them they stop being required.  When I tested with tabbing through and only filled in text areas the form let me submit with the radio buttons empty.   Did this get fixed, if so how?

As soon as a group of radio buttons is clicked once it is no longer deselectable by the user.

Understand how it works: what is required is to click any radio button in the group. A single member of the group cannot be required.
