GeneralDoes the IRS's 1040 form PDF - or PDFXChange Viewer - have a bug? Pin

The IRS has finally released the 1040 form for year 2017 (although it's still missing the very important, for me at least, 8606 form Mad | :mad: ), and as usual, I use my PDFXChange 2.5 (Build 309.0) to fill in the forms, thus allowing for a simple printout, sign & date, and snail mail to the IRS. (I cannot simply affix a bitmap of my signature, as the IRS demands real ink Mad | :mad: , and I always seem to have to send in memo with my return because I seem to always do something that the IRS has not made it easy to do Mad | :mad: , so I can't do the eFile, and even when I tried, it was far too much work to do, BUT I DIGRESS ...)

Anyway, I have been noticing every year that the textbox (or whatever it's called in PDF) for the Social Security Number always seems to not work properly - when I try to type in my number, it adds an extra space between digits; this would not be so bad, but the last digit of the middle set of digits always seems to be located exactly on a divider. Mad | :mad: I've been putting up with this every year, but now I'M MAD AS H3LL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE! Mad | :mad: Mad | :mad:

So before I tell my curmudgeon Senator about this (he's the one that recently asked a judicial nominee some very basic things about being a judge, which the nominee bombed big time), I want to make sure that it's not just a bug with PDFXChange (which if it is, I'm going to complain to them), so I would like folks who have access to Adobe PDF (which should be the standard for the proper behavior of a PDF file) to give this a try, so as to light my path. Of course, if anyone has actually programmed in PDF, that would be even better.

Here is the link to the form: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040.pdf[^]

P.S., As far as I know, PDFXChange is the only FREE PDF app that allows to fill in forms; if there are any suggestions for such a FREE PDF app NOT NAMED FOXIT (I don't care for the junkware), that would be welcomed. Smile | :)
