There is a way! But only if you haven’t saved the document already. Right after you fill or check a box you didn’t intend to, type Ctrl-Z. That’s it!. The majority of the forms make use of the most fundamental form fields, such as simple text fields, radio buttons and check boxes. Once again, please remember. Whenever the form runs on the desktop or Trimble the boxes are checked. I want the default set to uncheck. I typed in “False” in the default.

I don’t know if this is typical, but whenever I click on a box to get it filled in, I cannot figure out how to clear that box. I can check another box and that works fine, but just can’t clear uncheck a box I have already checked other than an undo.

It sounds like they are radio buttons, not check boxes.

Radio buttons cannot normally be deselected so that none in the group is selected, and they can be set up to look like a typical check box square instead of a typical radio button circular. George- Thanks for the help. Yes, they may very well be Radio buttons, since that is the way they seem to operate. But the form is complicated already kicked back once — and my problem is, what if I mistakenly click on the wrong check box and I want to take it back like answer a question on the form, someplace on the form that does not apply – like mistakenly answering a question in the citizenship and Resident Alien section — I think you can understand the situation.


Yes, it sounds like it wasn’t designed well, so you’re stuck with what you have.

You’ll just have to be careful. Radio buttons are great for “must answer” questions, but not so great in a lot of other cases, like the ones I have mentioned. And my criticism still stands sound like a little bit of short-coming in Adobe Acrobat’s design not to take this situation into account.

I will mark your first response as “Correct Answer”, assuming that there is no fix for this issue Bad Adobe. It’s possible to clear the value of a radio-button group using a simple script, without clearing the entire form.

And as mentioned, this is by design, it’s not a mistake. You don’t have JavaScript enabled.
