My company wants me to add these survey pdfs that our clients filled out in acrobat. They include checkboxes that I can't get to show up in indesign.

Does anyone know which setting I need to use to preserve the checkboxes when placing the pdfs in indesign?

  • What happens when you write out the PDF from InDesign? It may be necessary to copy over the fields in Acrobat.
