Problem:

Fields in Acrobat forms filled out by Apple Preview appear blank (gray boxes) when viewed by Acrobat Reader or Acrobat Pro. The data exists and can be viewed one field at a time when a field is double clicked.

Solution:

Install a script that adds "Fix Field Appearances" to the bottom of Edit menu. This function corrects the error in afflicted forms.

Procedure:

Quit Acrobat.
In a Terminal window:
mkdir -p ~/Library/Application\ Support/Adobe/Acrobat/10.0/JavaScripts
Right click on this link: ADBE_JFG_fixFields.js
Save linked file as:
ADBE_JFG_fixFields.js
in:
~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Acrobat/10.0/JavaScripts
