I'm trying to create a AcroForm using LaTeX. I also want to use pdftk to merge many PDFs. The problem is that pdftk does not behave well when it encounters it and the fields are hidden, as well as their value.

If I go in Acrobat and optimize the PDF, discarding form submission, import and reset actions, then all go well, even after being merged with pdftk.

My question is : is there a way to tell hyperref to not create form actions? Or is there a way to create fillable forms as easy as hyperref, and which do not create form actions.

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

As it stands, I don't think we'll get an answer here. At the very least we need some demo showing how you are setting up the forms. – Joseph Wright Aug 6 '13 at 15:06
