I have a form that looks and works as expected in Adobe until I save it as a Reader Extended PDF. Once I do that the form adds instances to the subform above and beyond the defaults I have set.

The form has a repeating subform with repeating rows. The default amount of subforms is 9 and default rows is 2 for each subform. However once I save it as a Reader Extended PDF the first subform defaults to 18 rows. The subsequent 8 subforms are correctly displaying 2 rows.

Any ideas.

I can send the form if possible...

When I use the form, before saving as Reader Extended it works as designed. I have 9 tables, each with 2 rows. The minimum rows is 1 and the default is 2, with no maximum.

Once I save it as a Reader Extended file as reopen the form, the first table does not default to 2 rows, but rather 18 rows. All subsequent tables are defaulted to 2 rows as expected.

What is odd is that if I restrain the amount of rows in each table to a maximum of 10, then save and Enable Reader Extended, the first table will have 10 rows, the second will have 8, and the rest will default to 2. The first 2 tables have rows that add up to 18...
