Add a simplified field notation

Simplified field notation is written more like formulas you add in spreadsheet applications like Microsoft Excel. Writing a notation is often an easier solution when adding calculation scripts.

To add a Simplified field notation

  1. Open the PDF in Nitro Pro
  2. On the Forms ribbon, in the Form Fields group, click Text Field
  3. Select the text field to edit
  4. Right-click and select Properties
  5. Click the Calculate tab
  6. Click the Simplified field notation option, and then click the Edit button
  7. Type the code for your script. In this example, the same calculation for creating sales tax is added. The code in the JavaScript Editor is written as follows:

    subtotal .0725;
