Interactive PDF on phone etc. Erroneous floating black boxes
« on: August 22, 2014, 01:11:08 am »
Hi, Newbie here, I won't deny that.

I'm getting a weird error/ miss-configuration of "Text Fields" when using interactive PDFs with my phone ( using the Adobe Reader APP ).  I'm getting weird floating box shadows that I can't seem to remove. Anyone know what this might be? Have I set up my text Fields incorrectly?
I've attached a screenshot of my phone for reference.

This error doesn't happen on Windows/ Linux etc. which makes me think it may not be something iv'e done... but im not ready to rule that out yet.

I'm seeing this behavior on tablets as well. Nexus 7 and iPad using Adobe Reader and Dropbox's default PDF previewer.

Using Scribus 1.4.4 Win7/64 bit build. I've tried exporting in 1.3/1.4/1.5 formats with no changes.

I've attached a very simple test case, literally a single form field on a blank page.

Work-around: editing the file in Adobe Reader IX, placing a single space in the text field(s), and saving the result seems to force correct display. Seems very much a kludge though.
