Using a pdf file with interactive fields, when printing, it prints the form fields along with the + text form field indicator. How do I set it up so it prints the text in the form fields (shrinking it automatically) instead of the form field and the plus sign. It is Adobe Acrobat Professional 8 for mac

    I tried what you suggested and it prints the text up to the form field overflow indicator. I was told that it should automatically shrink the text in the form field when you print it, so it all prints out, even though there is a form field overflow indicator there

    The problem I'm running into is when I print the pdf file, it prints it exactly as it shows on the screen with the + on the bottom corner of the form field box. Is there a way that when I print the document, it will shrink the text so it all prints out and not the text up to the +?

Hi,


In Acrobat 8 Pro you can flatten form fields in the Advanced -> PDF Optimizer -> Discard Objects dialog. Flattening forms makes form fields unusable and form data is merged with the page. So you can print the text.


Hope this helps.

    Hi,



    The plus sign is an overflow indicator, meaning that it will appear if the text

    you type on your form exceeds the number of characters that can fit in that

    field. To turn off the overflow indicator:

    1. Go to Start, and hover over Programs.

    2. Choose Acrobat Reader or Adobe Acrobat out of the program list by left

    clicking on it.

    3. Once Adobe opens, click on Edit, and choose Preferences. Result: The

    Preferences window will open.

    4. Click on Forms, and then un-check the box to the right of "Show text field

    overflow indicator."



    Hope this helps.

PDF Password Recovery 5.0 is an easy-to-use tool designed for removing asswords added to Adobe Acrobat PDF documents. It helps to decrypt protected Adobe Acrobat PDF files, which have "owner" password set, preventing the file from editing(changing), printing, selecting text and graphics(and copying them into the Clipboard), or adding/changing annotations and form fields. Pdf decrypt is being done instantly. Decrypted file can be opened in any PDF viewer without any restrictions -- i.e. with edit/copy/print functions enabled. All versions of Adobe Acrobat are supported. It also recovers document open passwords. http://www.recoverlostpassword.com/products/pdfpasswordrecovery.html

I am on windows XP. I have copied a PDF form on to my local disk. PDF document properties indicate that Filling of form fields is allowed yet I cannot fill the form fields. What do I have to do?


Try this first.

Look at your cursor. If it is a Hand, you have selected the hand tool. If not, go and select the Hand tool.

With the "Hand Tool" selected, go over one of the fields that you can type.

1. If the cursor remains as a "Hand", then the fields are NOT fillable. It can be printed, but NOT filled.

2. If the cursor changes from a "Hand" to a vertical line ("I"), -the one you see when you can type- then the problem is different. If this is the case post again and we can continue the search.

Form creat in flash


  1. Create a new document and set the size to 400 x 300 ("Frame" > "Frame Size")
  2. Set "Frame 1" to "Stop" ("Frame" > "Frame Delay" and check "Stop", click OK)
  3. Draw 2 edit fields with the "Edit field" tool, they will appear as Edit1 and Edit2. Double click each field and make sure HTML is not checked, uncheck if necessary.
  4. Draw a button, double-click it and rename it to "OK".
  5. Draw edit field labels "Phone" and "Email" with the text tool. Double click each field and make sure HTML is not checked, uncheck if necessary.
  6. Draw "ErrorMessage" field with the "Text Paragraph" tool. Choose "Item" > "Text Color" and change it to red. Choose "Item" > "Placement Properties" and rename the field to "ErrorMessage"
    1. Select the button, choose "Item" > "Actions" > "OnClick". Select "ActionScript" and paste the following code:

    // reset error message
    ErrorMessage = "";

    // validate phone field
    phone = Edit1;
    if(phone=="") ErrorMessage = "Enter your phone";

    // validate email field
    email = Edit2;
    if(email=="") ErrorMessage = "Enter your email";
    if(email.indexOf("@",0)<0) ErrorMessage = "Enter valid email";
    if(email.indexOf(".",0)<0) ErrorMessage = "Enter valid email";

    // build message string
    message = "mailto:support@selteco.com?subject=Title&body=Form contents%0A";
    message = message + "phone: " + phone + "%0A";
    message = message + "email: " + email;

    // execute form if errormessage is empty
    if(ErrorMessage=="") getURL(message,"_self");

Hit F9 to preview. The form will not work until you export Flash file and HTML page. Choose "File" > "Export HTML Page" to create HTML page and test the form in a browser. This form is using very basic validation. Use "%0A" as line separator.
Use the following functions or attributes of the string:
  • length returns the number of characters
  • charAt(x) returns zero-based character at position x
  • indexOf(substring,startindex) returns the position of the first occurrence of the specified substring or -1.
  • lastIndexOf(substring,startindex) returns the position of the last occurrence of the specified substring or -1.
  • substr(start,n) returns n characters string starting at specified position
  • toLowerCase(), toUpperCase() converts the string to lower or upper case

Can't print custom envelope on HP Photosmart 7280


OK, to make this clearer, I had the same problem on my HP C7180. It seems to be rampant throughout their Multifunction printers.

My Fix, combining several others:

1. Go to Printers and Faxes on your Start Menu. In the Printers window, select Server Properties from the File menu. Use the Forms tab of the Print Server Properties dialog box to view printer forms. You may also see lots of forms that you wish your printer could see, but don't worry, it'll see the one you create now. And be sure when you create your form that you use the narrower dimension for the width and the longer dimension for the height. Usually for envelopes you will print in landscape mode.
2. Select the Create A New Form check box.
3. Enter a new name for the Form in the Form Description For field.
4. Use the fields in the Measurements area to set the paper size and margins. *Use the narrower dimension for the width and the longer dimension for the height*.
5. Choose the Save Form button to save the form. The Save Form button only gets pick-able when you type in a different name than what's there already.

Now go to your document program, such as Word. Make sure the window for the document you want to print is the active window. Select File/Page Setup..., Paper Size Tab, and there select the form you just created from the dropdown list

Still in your document program, select File/Print... then Properties. Select the Features tab, which may be differently named. Under Resizing Options/Size dropdown, select More... and there you'll find your newly created form down at the bottom, under Custom. Pick it.

If you're printing envelopes or other things where the way you view it it's wider side-to-side than it is tall, be sure and select "landscape" in both "page setup..." on your document program and in File/Print.../Properties/Features?Basic Options.

When I did all this methodically, I was able to print my Christmas envelopes. Yay!

Filling in Adobe Acrobat job applications


Most Acrobat forms (your job application for example) are designed to be printed out and the fields filled in by hand. If you create a new form, based on the job application that you've downloaded, you may be able to type in your information in the fields, but it will depend on the security level of the PDF that was created originally. It sounds like the person who designed the form didn't set it up to accept input, merely to be printed out and filled out manually using the first handheld computer: a pencil.

Hope this will FixYa!!!
