[Solved] Form controls disabled

Postby nephin » Fri Feb 28, 2020 5:18 pm

Hi.
I'm trying to create a PDF with forms (check boxes and text boxes). I've got the toolbar visible from the "View" menu, and I understand how to use it, but the main functions are constantly disabled :crazy:

It's not about toggling between project/view mode. The main tools stay disabled. Both in a new empty document, and in an existing one with text.
What else should be done to use this tools?

There are tool bars for Form Design and Form Controls. The one you are displaying in your message is the Form Design tool bar. If you use the Form Controls tool bar to add a control to your document, the icons on the Form Design tool bar will become active.
Windows 10 and Linux Mint, since 2017

Thank you very much.
In Polish, the other toolbar name is translated in a way I couldn't associate it with Form controls. But tried one by one and found. It works. Thanks a lot!
