Hi all,

can someone help out?

I have to create many PDF forms which have many checkboxes inside.

Some Pages with 50 rows and 12 colums of checkboxes (customers need).

So i created one row of boxes in right direction and size and copied them for the other rows.

Result: Many boxes with same name 🙂

 

How to rename the boxes, so that every box has a unique name?

 

It is really stupid, that the Adobe Reader pro don`t have such functions inside.

(Also a function to change kind of field after initial scanning in form is really missing.)

 

Can someone help?

 

greets

You can change the names in the properties of the fields. You need Adobe Acrobat Standard or Pro for this. It is not possible with the free Acrobat Reader.

Both of these tasks can be done using scripts, such as these (paid-for) ones I've created:

If you can't find the folder then you need to create it yourself.

Please contact me by email for further support with this.
