Eform help

Discussion in 'Graphic Design Forum:' started by clarke creative, Aug 19, 2014.

  1. Afternoon all,

    I have created a simple form via indesign, with a submission button at the end. I am attempting to have the words ' SUBMIT ' above the button.

    All is there until i export to interactive PDF when the text above the submission button disappears?

    If anyone can point out where i am going wrong this will be truly appreciated.

    Can you post some screenshots of what's happening?

    How did you create the submit button and the text?
  3. Sure Hank,

    Attached is a screen shot from form indesign then the exported PDF - minus the text ' SUBMIT '

    The way in which i am doing this is dragging a sample button across from the bookmarks and button tab, positioning and placing text on top - is this right? Screen shot 1.JPG Screen shot 2.JPG

    The words do appear for a second when opening the PDF, it almost as if the button is now on top of the text?

    Try moving the Submit to a layer above the button itself.
  5. That was my initial thought - still no joy

    You wouldn't perchance have made the white text set to overprint?

    Check the Window>Attributes and make sure that overprint is not ticked for the text.
  7. window > out put > attributes

    Over print is not ticked cannot even tick this, still no joy?

    Select the text with the text tool.

    If you like - you can post a link to the InDesign file (include a IDML) and I will take a look.

  9. Hank,

    thanks for the advice on this matter - sorted it with a slight amendment to original design and creation of a bespoke button!
