Editing PDF Document Form Fields with Adobe Reader

Hi, I have created a Report Builder PDF document with text form fields (fftText). The form fields are editable when I use Foxit Reader to open the PDF document. I cannot edit the form fields when using Adobe reader. What do I need to do to make this work with Adobe Reader?

I'm using version 20.03.

Thanks, as always, for your excellent help,

Phil Horst


  • Hi Phil,

    We have not seen this behavior before.

    As a quick test, I created a new report and place a few labels set to fftText and exported to PDF. I was then able to open the PDF with Adobe Reader and edit the form fields as expected. Are you able to repeat similar test with different results?

    If you would like, you can send the affected PDF to me and I can try it on my machine as well. Send all files to support@.

    Best Regards,
