Duplicate Form Fields

Sometimes when creating a form you may need multiple copies of the same field across multiple pages. The Duplicate feature allows you to create replicas of the selected field in the exact same position across the specified pages. This for example can be useful when creating an ID number that needs to be displayed in the header of every page of the document.

By default duplicated fields are linked together so that same data populates each instance of the field within the document. See Linking Form Fields for more information.


How to Duplicate Form Fields

  1. Start the Form Editing Mode by going to the Forms Tab
  2. Click on the Form Field Type you wish to create. The cursor will then change to show the field type currently selected
  3. Using the mouse move to the location you want to place the field and then click to place the field
  4. Apply any settings you want to use on the field BEFORE the next step
  5. Right Click on the field and select Duplicate
  6. Set the preferred options 
  7. Click OK to finish creating the new fields



Pages -  The range of pages to create the duplicated fields

  • All Pages: all pages in the document
  • Page Range: specify the page range using the From and To options
  • Even Pages Only: only copy fields to the even pages of the document (i.e. 2, 4, 6, 8, etc..)
  • Odd Pages Only: only copy fields to the odd pages of the document (i.e. 1, 3, 5, 7, etc...)

Use same names/link fields - when checked all created fields will be set to the same name to link them together. See Linking Form Fields for more information.
