Acrobat/Reader -- Automatically Set Field Calculation Order

Direct purchase using PayPal ($35 per license)!

Acrobat's built-in dialog for setting the Field Calculation Order can be a real hassle. The only options in it are to move a field up or down the list, so if you have a document with a lot of fields that needs to be ordered properly, it can take ages.

That's why I developed this tool to automatically set the field calculation order of all the fields in a document with a single click. You can choose from the following options:
  • Set calculation order by rows (top to bottom, left to right)
  • Set calculation order by columns (left to right, top to bottom)
  • Set calculation order alphabetically by field name (ascending/descending)
  • New Feature: Set calculation order based on an input file, such as a text file or a CSV file

For more information about this tool, or if you're interested in purchasing it, you can contact me directly.
