bill butcher Posted February 13, 2018 Report Share Posted February 13, 2018 I recently switched to nitro pro 11 from nuance pro do to some software compatibility issues ..Anyhow it had an awesome feature I cant seem to find in Nitro Pro 11 and was wondering if someone knows if nitro pro 11 can do it or has an add in to do it ? But in Nuance pro when you open any document it automatically will search the document for any blanks, boxes etc .. where it thinks that editable text can be inserted , IT AUTOMATICALLY CREATES TEXT BOXES .. this is most helpful when you have a scanned or saved document that has many blanks you want to be completed or filled in once the document is a pdf file ..it saves a lot of time having to go in and create the boxes by hand . Another issue I cant wrap my head around is when you do create text boxes and you save the form to latter be completed or filled out .. and you want to take a group of these completed forms and make a file ..it over rides all the individual info with what ever is last entered in " thus the boxes are linked " not sure the purpose of this .. but shouldn't the created boxes automatically have a different name each time you make one .. if I rename them like example I am creating a form for my Valve inspections ..there are about 50 of them , I record the date , inspected by person , the location , name of valve, work order number etc .. these are all blanks on the form that I want to create one master form and re use for each of the 50 sites ... what I do is fill in that info then save the individual form under the name of the valve .. once I am done with all 50 inspections , I save them in a file as one completed inspection for 2017 Spring lets say ..that way I don't have to email 50 separate sheets .. how ever as I create that file I noticed that the info is over written by what ever info was last entered .. So the last valve may have been inspected by me John doe , on 4-17-2017 , work order number 456 , at Brandon Minnesota , now all the valve reports fill in with that info ...and those fields will be different for each one ..now without making 50 separate forms with separate named text boxes how do you create one that will allow for different info for each of the 50 individual forms that will be made into one file... this also goes along with the auto complete or auto detect text boxes function I described earlier ..where as in nuance pro it automatically finds areas of the forms where you want to be able to add editable text ,and creates the boxes with different names so once the form is created , it can be reused , for all 50 sites and the info is its individual but can be saved as one file and does not over write the info you input.. I am so hoping that nitro pro 11 can do this , I want to be impressed by the software as it does other things quite well ..but this is one big hang up , that may be the difference in going back to Nuance for me ... anyhelp would be much appreciated Thanks Bill firstname.lastname@example.org Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
