I have installed the latest libre-office version 7.2 , and wrote a fillable odt file.
The option button can be selected in libre-office,i have upload the whole sample odt file,you can download it and try.


Convert the odt into a fillable pdf,upload the converted pdf from odt .

enter image description here


I can't select the option Travel by and Travel along with mouse,but the check box I accept the terms and conditions can be selected with mouse,how to make all the options select-able? Please download both mytest.odt and mytest.pdf to check what happens in your environment(debian11+libreoffice7.2)?

  • On MacOS, using the default PDF reader (called "preview"), all entries in "travel by" and "travel along" can be selected. I suspect that your issue might depend on which PDF reader you're using. Which one is it?

It looks like a bug with some PDF viewer.

e.g. using Okular or qpdfview, it works (both buttons and fields, all); Evince, mupdf, xreader, epdfview do not

Which PDF viewer do you use?

  • I am using adobe reader 's linux version,there is a bug in it.
