[Scribus] PDF Form Issue
Mon Jan 29 08:01:30 CET 2007
i have the full version of acrobat 5. i haven't used reader in years, but
i'll take a stab basing my choices on aa5.
is there a "forms" tab in your preferences. if there is, is ther a
"highlight form fields" check box. if there is, check it and you should be
good to go.
