I think it's more often the case that one want's to give only specific 
options to users to choose from not allow them to enter anything but 
default values. That's probably why combo box isn't editable by default.
Anyway, here's how you make them editable. Create a combo box, right 
click on it and choose PDF Options -> Field Properties. There on the 
"Options" page you'll find a check box for making the combo box Editable
