Support » Plugin: ShortPixel Image Optimizer » Fillable pdf forms should not be optimised

  • Resolved Karen KISS WP Websites



    This is more of a note here for anyone else who can’t work out why their fillable pdf forms lose the ability for the fields to be filled in when using Shortpixel.

    This has driven me crazy for a few hours until I discovered that I always use Shortpixel to optimise any pdf files. However in this case the pdf forms had fillable fields and as part of the optimisation the fields could no longer be filled.

    Simply make sure that the field to optimise pdf files is not selected in the advanced tab and it’ll work okay.
