TIP: Using Auto-Complete in Acrobat & Reader

Acrobat and Adobe Reader have a preference for allowing auto-complete of form fields. You just select Edit > Preferences > Forms and then you can select Off, Basic, or Advanced. Once you’ve select Basic or Advanced, then Acrobat will remember what you’ve input so that you’ll have those words, numbers, etc. available in subsequent fields. There’s one exception — if the form was created with Adobe LiveCycle Designer, *and* is a dynamic form — auto-complete will work, but you’ll have to double-click to get the auto-complete drop-down with all your saved values.

    How long does the Adobe keeps the autocomplete entries. We used to have Reader 7.0 and it keeps the entries but with Reader 9.1 the entry lists are emptyed when we exit.
