Just to clarify, were you talking about going into form builder mode while content is filled into form fields? If so, this is expected as the focus will be on adjusting the form locations as opposed to the content. If you apply the fields or change out of the tool group, the content will reappear.
If this is not your issue, could you please provide the exact steps to reproduce so I can investigate on my end?
Thats right , what my requirement is that just like annotations, we see and track the changes. In a similar fashion we need the same for forms as well . I saw that in the Form builder mode we can see the content in the sidebar but not in pdf . We need the trackers as well as form content in PDF for forms section.
This is expected as when you are in form builder mode, the widgets and annotations are disabled and the focus is on modifying form fields. While in the form builder mode, you are editing placeholders of the widgets and not the actual widgets. When you click Apply Fields, the changes are then applied to the fields. If you need to see the value of a form field, it is shown when you open the popup.
If you feel that form builder mode is too confusing for your users, you can disable the mode entirely instead.
