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.
Agree. The only way I find is to export to interactive PDF, then in Acrobat Pro: "Prepare Form" and into the properties of the field, define the default value. Not the best way at all! Would be very useful to be able to define the default value directly in InDesign.
Agree 100%. I've been searching for about an hour as I was just CONVINCED there must at least be a script for this. Can't find a thing.
Please do this!
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.
