I am also new to PRo2PDF and face a few issues with repeatable forms:
1) Symbols different from Latin (in my case Cyrillic) are shown in generated PDF as squares. If you do not flatten PDF and click to such a field after the form is generated yo can see the the data is correctly transmitted from Formidable PRO in Cyrillic but as soon as you move cursor to another field it shows up squares again instead of symbols.
2) If I have more repeatable strings to follow (I have 15 in total) after entered data and they are empty (only 2 where filled out via the form) empty fields are filled up with some code automatically although they have to be blank I believe.
3) If you have more then 10 repeatable strings (fields) data repeated again starting from 11th string (field). So string (field) #11 inherits data from string (field) #1, #12 inherits data from #2 etc.

There is a known issue with Slovak characters such as (ľšžýáíéäšďčňô), however, we have not heard of any issues with Cyrillic characters. Although the issue may be with Cyrillic characters as well, you can try changing the font to see if they fixes the issue. If a font change does not work, the plugin may not be currently compatible with Cyrillic.
Regarding the repeatable fields, we would need to see a screen shot of the Field Map Layout to determine the issue, or complete this form and will take a look at the issue.

It looks like it works OK if there is only one string of data entered. If there are more then one then Cyrillic symbols looks broken in the view of the form.
Here is the screen cast you requested.November 15, 2016 at 6:34 am #11158

When using the Repeatable (separate fields) you do not need to map fields beyond the first set. So if you have pdf fields named Fname1 Fname2 Fname3… you only need to map Fname1 and the rest will just fill in based on the field names with numbers.
Is it possible for you to sent the PDF form to support AT formidablepro2pdf DOT com? We’d like to double-check the Cyrillic issue as well as the repeatable fields.

I have sent you the form. I also tried to use a font in Adobe DC which has unicode in its description but that didn’t help anyhow.February 3, 2017 at 10:34 am #11797
If still needed, we have added a Language dropdown to the Field Map Layout in the latest version which includes a “Unicode” option with Cyrillic characters. Update the plugin to use the new language dropdown.
