I’ve got an 8-page document that needs to be converted to PDF with form fields intact. I spent 4 hours creating these form fields via Adobe’s BS form field function; but the document can never be edited without starting from form field scratch.
Once the file is PDF’d, every page will have the same 3 items on it: Loan Number, Loan Servicer, and Client Name. I don’t want the client to have to re-type this information on every page. I moved away from Word because Adobe PDF couldn’t recognize form fields inside of Word (and I was in Adobe hell earlier today). LibreOffice seems to be dealing with converting to PDF and maintaining form fields nicely, but I would like to be able to “bookmark” or “cross-reference” these 3 form fields on every page through the PDF file and have the client only fill in the information one time.
With Word, I can insert a form field and bookmark that field in other locations in the document… But you can’t PDF the file and keep the form fields. Can this be done in LO and still be able to PDF into a form-fillable PDF file with those references in tact? Am I making any sense?
