How can we improve InDesign?

It'd be so much more efficient to be able to put in a default value in editable form text fields in InDesign vs Acrobat.

I work on a creative team building editable form fields in InDesign for interactive pdf export. It'd be so much more efficient to be able to put in a DEFAULT VALUE OPTION with the correct InDesign formatting in editable form text fields in InDesign vs the limited option in Acrobat.

    I'm honestly surprised it's not an option! I've been searching online this morning for a solution outside of Acrobat, using InDesign software I'm using to create the form but it looks like there isn't one. There must be a reason for it...?

    I completely agree with this. I use the text fields as part of an interactive pop up button that can be edited and it would help so much if we were able to input information in indesign before exporting to Acrobat and then having to mess with it.
