Change type of form field created by wizard


when I used the wizard to create form fields, it made some wrong matches. So there some circles (from InDesign) became checkboxes instead of radio buttons. Is there any way to change the type afterwards?
I could delete the fields and create new, of course. But the fields, the wizard creates, look better than mine. They are transparent and you can see the circle from InDesign. My buttons have some Windows-2000-GUI-style (this 3D-shadow-effect). Additionally, there are many field I would have to change and arrange them precisely.

Thanks a lot.

Unless you go back to Acrobat 5 (the last Acrobat version where it was possible to change the type of a field), your only choice is to remove the wizard-created fields and recreate them the way you want.

In order to get the same look of the fields, switch to the Object Select Tool, and select a field whose properties you want to make default, then open the context menu (right-click/Cmd-Click on the field, and select "Use current properties as new Defaults", and that should do it.

Hope this can help.

Great, this helps a lot. Version 5 would be an last alternative but the idea of setting default is awesome *banging-head-against-wall*
