Auto Populate Fields

Avatar

11-08-2008

I am creating a one page document with identical information in the top half and bottom half. As a person fills in the fields in the top half I want it to autofill the bottom half with whatever they are typing. Is there an easy way to do this without coding? In short, I just want the bottom half to mirror the top half without having to type it all twice.



I've tried making the "object name" the same for 2 fields but I can't make them identical. It becomes "name[0]" and "name[1]"



I'm using Adobe Designer 7.0



Thank you.

Hi,



Apart from naming the objects as the same name, you also need to define the objects as 'global' under the binding tab in the Object palette. See the help topic on 'Defining fields as global'.



Hope this helps 🙂
