I have created fillable PDF form by Acrobat DC Pro.

When someone uses the form and Text field, following issue has happened.

 - Text can be input in text field

 - But the text is not shown and printed enless mouse cursor is over the text field

 - In the field, multile line value was input

 

Do you know what is the issue (Is this outstanding issue?)?

 

For your reference, the text field is defined as format category=None. Any value should be input.

Also, as text properties, multi line/scroll long text are allowed.

 

Also, I could find similar issue below, but not sure it's same issue with me.

Someone could input value correctly including newline character. After that, the value could not be visible correctly unless mouse over.

Do you mean you're technically not able to do it, or you're not allowed to?

Your PDF was obviously screwed up by Apple Preview (aka the PDF Killer).

The whole of the internet keeps blaming Preview, or a user filled out the form using Preview and it screwed it up,  and on and on. 

 

Well, how about this? I'm using Acrobat DC on a Mac, Mojave latest version, and I download a form from the IRS, and this stupid phenomenon keeps happening. All that is said is that Preview is to blame, but Preview is nowhere part of this.

 

My hope would be if you don't know WHY something is happening, the first thing would be to investigate it, not assume you know the particulars. This is a really frustrating, intractable, REAL problem.
