For the past few weeks I have been building a form. In this form are fields which are mandatory, but that are in inside optional subforms - that is, if that subform is not in use, the fields within are not required.
I have set the parent subform's presence to "inactive", but the fields within that subform still cause mandatory field errors when submitting the form as a PDF by email. The target version is set acrobat reader 9.1 or later.
While that would work, it would take a very long time, and the logic would not be simple - some subforms have a mixture of required and non-required fields that also change depending on other selections within that form. Hiding and reshowing subform would break it. The .presence = "inactive" is exactly what is needed here, but for some reason, does not work.
