unchecking radio buttons in fillable PDF

  1. Default unchecking radio buttons in fillable PDF

    I want those checking check box to have the ability to uncheck a box (or radio button). For instance, if there's a question that says, "If you checked "yes" to 8a above, skip question 8b," but someone accidentally checks the radio button in 8b, how do they get BOTH radio buttons unchecked. Right now, there are two radio buttons for each statement -- one for yes, one for no. One can click "yes" and then change their mind and click "no" and "no" is checked and "yes" is unchecked. HOWEVER, I find no way to uncheck BOTH once one or the other has been checked.

    How can that be done?

    Thank you.

    In Acrobat set the value of the radio button group to "Off". You can also group check boxes and change the symbol, this will allow one to uncheck a checked button.

    Thanks, Geo

    But, the values listed for radio button is either "default" or something else -- but NOT off. At least I can't figure out where it might be.

    As for the check boxes -- once checked they remain checked even when the other check box is checked. I need the corresponding box to become unchecked when the other (yes/no) box is checked.

    Any advice?

    thanks.

    use check boxes with the same field name but different export value, gives you the best of both worlds
