hidden subforms visible when exported to adobe reader

Avatar

Level 2

Hello,

I have a problem with a form. I have hidden subforms which appear when the add button is clicked. They are hidden in adobe acrobat dc, but when I save it as reader extended pdf all these hidden subforms are visible, and it makes the document 19 pages, instead of three. Is there a way of solving it?

Thanks

Hi again,

 

I found the solution. It wasn't about the acrobat reader. Actually the data binding was set in a wrong way (no data). I took the solution from this topic: https://experienceleaguecommunities.adobe.com/t5/adobe-livecycle-questions/subform-instances-are-not...

 

Thanks for your help!

Would you like to share your form so we can try to figure it out?

Can you create a sample form(without any confidential data) similar to your original form, and share the same?

I have reader extended a PDF with Adobe Acorbat Pro, in which I am hiding 2nd and 3rd page on form load, and making them visible on a button click, and it is working as expected in Acrobat Reader DC too. Please have a look at the form below.
