Another New Feature (06/05/2014): Now it's possible to select multiple combo-boxes and/or radio-list fields in your file and apply the new items to them all, in a single process!
New Feature: It is now also possible to embed the text file used in this script into the actual PDF.
The data from the text file will be automatically loaded each time the file is opened, so you can easily update the list and keep it up-to-date at all times.
If you're working with Acrobat form fields and need to insert a large amount of items to a drop-down menu field (also known as a combo-box), you know what a pain it can be to manually enter all of those values.
Well, with this script you can just put all of your items (name and export value, or just name) in a text file or even an Excel spreadsheet and the script will read them and add them to your drop-down box.
Setup and maintenance of your PDF forms will be much faster and easier using this tool.
Screenshot of the tool:
Download a free sample PDF file that contains lists of all the US States in various forms: Full name, 2-letter code, and full name with the 2-letter code as the export value.
The lists were populated using this tool and the source text files used to achieve that are also included. The file can be downloaded from here.
Also, a free demo version of this script is available here.
This version will only import the first three items from the input file. Purchase the full version and get the full capabilities of the script!
