InDesign CS6: PDF Form Functions
Instead of a regular button, now you can convert an object to a CheckBox, Combo Box, List Box, Radio Button, Signature Field or Text Field. A PDF options area below in the panel allows you to customize some options. Object >Interactive displays a whole list of interactive objects you can convert a shape into.
Obviously having the feature native to InDesign is a big plus, but I am finding that there are some options that still need to be setup afterwards within Acrobat (like changing text color for the form field). But you can do some funky customizeation of check box appearances…etc. Either way, even though you still have to edit the form somewhat within Acrobat, it’s a pretty decent feature.
The pre-built buttons library is also updated to include form fields as well! Window > Sample Buttons and Forms!
