Thanks for leaving a comment, and sorry for the delay in replying.
I’ve updated FormMaker to deal with the issue of leftover field calculations better, and I hope to publish this update in the coming week.
It would be very helpful if you could send me the problematic InDesign file you have (if you still have it – I gather it was a test file) so I can do some extra testing on it.

Thanks. Some of the problems came from my inexperience in dealing with the console in Acrobat, and some others were solved when I began to refresh the FormMaker window at each work session. So I’m good now, and the update will prevent further problems.
Now, the main problem I have is that scripts that work in Acrobat Pro are broken in Reader. For some reason, it appears that Reader doesn’t recognize scripts at the document level, so all my variables are not declared. If you have a clue for me, I’d be grateful.June 15, 2023 at 3:07 pm #7448ArielKeymaster
Glad to hear the initial issue is sorted. I think that the update should prevent that sort of thing happening going forward.
Re. the second issue, I was not aware that Reader does not support document scripts. It would be really useful if you could share the InDesign file with me so that I can test. Or the PDF too.
I’d also be happy to do a screenshare if you think that might be helpful.
