    In Formidable forms there is an option to have an ‘other’ field. I couldn’t find anything about this in your docs.

    Is this field supported? Because when I use it, if I have other checked fields in the list, they also appear in this fields value in the PDF.

    If it is supported, is there a way to automatically check the box next to it in the pdf as well as fill the text field? And how would I prevent the other checked fields from appearing in this field?

    Formidable’s “other option” will only work if you merge to a PDF text field, not to a PDF radio button because there’s is no way to ‘match’ random user’s input to a PDF radio button.

    The work-around is to use Formidable’s conditional logic to show/hide a Formidable Text Field and call it “other”. This will select the “other” PDF Radio Option and fill the PDF’s “other” text field.

    We remain at your service.

    Thanks for your response. The second option is what I had been doing but was hoping!
