Hello. I am using Acrobat 11 and have been asked to update an old form. The form has a number of text fields and general text. In the current form there is some text displayed that indicates the information that is required. This text is always visible until the filler accesses the field. (it is not a hover over tooltip). I cannot work out how this was done previously and can see no such text in the field properties.
See attached file. The fields in question are Name: - (Given names/s) and (Surname), email: (Please provide a current addresss.....) If I change any of the field properties, the displayed text dissapears.
You might still have access to LCD if you have Acrobat Pro XI. I would STRONGLY recommend you convert your form to a regular PDF file, though, as this editor is no longer bundled with Acrobat and needs to be purchased separately, and also this format is becoming less and less supported and more and more difficult to use.
