I've tried some PDF forms. In Adobe Reader the tab key moves to the next field and you can immediately begin typing.

In PDFium tab also moves to the next field, but I find I have to click in the field before I'm allowed to begin typing. Is this a bug or is there something I can do about it?

Further testing with PDF forms. The demo uses CopyToClipboard and PasteFromClipboard and I can successfully do multiple uses of the clipboard, though double clicking on text does not select it, which is inconvenient.

However, if I use Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V I can only use it once then I get an error: Cannot open clipboard: Access is denied.

If I use Ctrl+V, whatever is on the clipboard is pasted in doubled, "name" became "namename". The same thing happens if I use Ctrl+X then Ctrl+V.

I do note a useful feature. If you edit a form in Adobe Reader and later reopen the PDF, Adobe Reader will not allow further editing. PDFium does allow further editing. Nice!

Thanks for the bug reports, JR,

We’ll have fixes for these in 10.0.1. You can email me for the pre-release.

Another question. I noted that PDFium activates web hyperlinks which is great. But it doesn't apparently activate hyperlinks within the document such as for a table of contents. They are displayed in color with the underline, but nothing happens. OnClickLink is apparently not activated. Any chance of that being fixed, or is there a work around?

There are many internal hyperlinks and page 20 has a several external hyperlinks that do activate the demo program.

Hi JR

I'm afraid PDFium does not seem to support these kinds of links.
