Default Problems with creating forms in Acrobat Pro 9


I like (sort of) the new style for creating forms. However; execution leave much to be desired.

I spent 6 hours yesterday adding about 20 (a mix of Text and check boxes) boxes to one page on a two page pdf. about every 2 minutes or so I would have a crash.

Using OSX4.11 on a 1.67 GB PowerBook (powerpc) 17" Laptop (system Ram is 2 GB). I made the mistake of instead of buying the CD package from Adobe opted to download from Adobe (on a 1 MB DSL line) took a couple of hours to download) I created a DVD installer disk. But anyway after a certain point the program asked for system password and did a reinstall/repair. Still didn't help.

In previous versions there was a way to adjust memory Cache there is none in this version. usually I had to set to 1000 just to keep Acrobat from Crashing, looking at a PDF. Now there is no way to set.

keeps on I am going to have to decompress acrobat 8 so I can do forms.

How much free space on your disk? Have you tried clearing your caches?

Your system is sufficient, but yet it doesn't work. A corrupted cache
could cause the problem. I'd clear your system and personal cache's with
applejack or onyx.

I regularly create pdfs with forms with some pages having 30 to 40
fields linked to other fields on other pages with no issues. However,
I'm using an intel laptop with 10.5.x. So it is not directly comparable.
I have been doing this going back to Acrobat 8 (maybe 7) never having to
adjust any settings in Acrobat to avoid crashing.

Do you have any haxies running on your system?

No Haxies. I decompressed my back up of Acrobat 8 and used a original copy of the PDF to create the forms. Acrobat didn't have the first hiccup. took all of 15 minutes.

I tried to do the same on Acrobat 9, after I used AppleJack to dump all my cache files. same results about ever 2-1/2 - 3 minutes Crash City.

If you want to look at the original PDF with no form text and check boxes. I can send to you. its only page two I'm interested in.

I've spent quite a bit of time with the forms feature in Acrobat 9 Pro. I've never had one crash that I can recall. Mac OS X 10.5.6, MacBook Pro, 2 Gb of RAM.
