Adding Fields

When you have the hang of creating fields, you'll want to add more fields. The easiest way is to duplicate an existing field.

To duplicate an existing field:

1.
Choose the Form tool (F) from the Editing toolbar.

2.
Press the Ctrl/Option key, click on the field you wish to duplicate, and drag to where you'd like the new field to be

3.
Release the mouse button before releasing the Ctrl/Option key.

The field is duplicated.

4.
Double-click the field to open the Field Properties dialog box.

5.
Give the duplicate field a unique name.

6.
Repeat steps 1–5 until you've duplicated all the fields you need (Figure 8.7).

Figure 8.7. Ctrl-click or Option-click and drag repeatedly until you've created enough duplicate fields.


7.
Switch to the Hand tool (H) to check the appearance of the fields (Figure 8.8).
