Editable fields issues

Hi @AllainU,

I have created an editable Nitro document (via Word), with editable text fields.  However, clients are complaining that when they try to input text to the fields, the text types over the top of each other.   So, they'll type a letter, but the cursor won't move forward and the next letter just types over the top of the first letter.

I believe it has something to do with clients using other PDF programmes, but its a real issue - any suggestions are most welcome.

Hi @Allain Umailin

I contacted you about this in December last and Im having the same issue:  I've created an editable pdf document in Nitro, but when I email it to clients and they open it within another PDF software, the letters/fonts types over the top of each other. Do you have any suggestions on how to fix this please?
