Confirm form fields


If Acrobat DC detects form fields, it will prompt you to place and review the fields, editing field properties as needed. In the sample file, click the Field Detection icon at the top left, then double-click in each field to review field properties. Click OK to confirm the properties. When you review the Date field in the sample file, you’ll need to change the Field Type from Text Input to Date under the Signer Info Fields header. Then click OK.
