I tried everything possible to make this work but I failed!

I am with InDesign 2022 (v18) and I am reading my exported PDF with Acrobat DC but the text fields is not allowing me to write in them, they just like only boxes as image!

 

I am on Windows 10

Fixed!

The small drop down menu is not so clear.

There is two types of pdf inside it one for Print and another for Interactive forms.

I wish they made it an option up in the Export menu.

 

Thank you for your help.

Not enough info. We need to know EXACTLY how you created these fields and how you exported it. 

That said, my wild guess would be that you exported a print PDF instead of interactive.
