Can I copy Interactive PDF fields?

I created a form in InDesign with over 100 (Interactive) fillable fields. I then edited the PDF (in Acrobat PRO) to add math formulas to about 30 of the fields. Quite a bit of work to get it working properly.

I now need to go back into the InDesign file and add additional elements to the form that were overlooked. Is there a way to copy all the math formulas from the original PDF I edited, to the new Interactive PDF I'll need to make (with the added elements)?

You don't need to. Just export a new PDF and then use the replace pages command in Acrobat. The interactive fields will remain and the static artwork will be replaced.

Great. I'm glad you asked instead of trying to recreate all of that work.
