Fillable fields not working in other programs

Recommended Posts

I've created a document that has fillable fields but when opened in Adobe they don't work. Can someone point me to the right direction for a fix?

Can you give me some more details here? What version of Nitro and what version of Adobe? I did a quick test with adding form fields to a PDF that didn't have them in Nitro 11.0.7.411, and Adobe Reader DC was able to open, display, edit, and save the PDF without issue.

Is Adobe set to display the form fields?  Mine shows the fields in purple.

Thank you Steven, I did some more playing around after posting and I think there was something wrong with the original form I recycled. When I started a new document as a test the fields work in both Adobe and Nitro, it was really just the fields that were already in that form that stopped working when I began editing. I know better now (this was my first time using Nitro), just going through and re-doing all my fillable fields:(
