Chapter 10. Forms > Adding Fields

Adding Fields

Once you understand how to create fields, you'll probably want to add more. A quick way to add form fields is in a column spreadsheet form. Once you have a certain look and size for a form field, use the Create Multiple Copies feature to make more fields that are evenly distributed and spaced apart nicely. After creating the copies, you can then edit the individual boxes as you like.

To create a table of form fields

1.
Choose the Select Object tool from the Advanced Editing toolbar.

2.
Right-click/Control-click the field you want to copy and choose Create Multiple Copies from the contextual menu (Figure 10.11).

Figure 10.11. You can make multiple copies of a field you've created.


This launches the Create Multiple Copies of Fields dialog box.

3.
Enter the number of fields you want to copy down and across (Figure 10.12).

Figure 10.12. You can change the size and location of all of the fields at one time.


This will affect all fields that you are duplicating. You can also choose the Overall position: you can move all of the fields up, down, left, or right. Just click the appropriate button to move the fields. Keep in mind that you can always drag the field to a new position using the form field tool that created the original field.

4.
Click OK to view the group of new fields on your document (Figure 10.13).
