I'm looking for a posibility in interactive PDFs: The user should enter his name in a text input field. This name should autimatically appear in diffrent places in the same PDF. I would be glad if someone can tell me how to do. 🙂

Give the fields the same name.
Thanx 4 answering! 😉
But they should look differet, e.g. name should appear several times in Flow-Text.
I have no idea what you mean by that.
I don't know what you mean by "Flow-Text" either.
You could make the Name field entry appear elsewhere within a fixed paragraph using a read-only field that gets the value of the Name-entered field, but you couldn't anchor it in some text "flow" (which in itself, isn't possible in a PDF outside of a live, multi-line text field).
Can you elaborate on exactly what you want?
Thank you for answering.
This is what I mean: A read-only field that gets the value of the Name-entered field.
How do I do this? It should NOT be another text-input-field, which the user can edit. (Which happens, when I just take another input-field with the same name.)
In Acrobat, the value of the Name-entered field can be used only in another text form, not inserted into read-only text.
Thank you, but I work with InDesign and would like to solve the problem there.

Under those self-imposed constraints, you won't solve this problem.
