>             Project: PDFBox
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.13
>            Reporter: Seth Freeman
>            Priority: Critical

> This feature is making some useful aspects of having combined field forms not work. This
should be set as something that is optional. 
>  
> In my case, we are using 3 different medical forms that all have similar fields. In Acrobat
merging would set the fields equal to each other. I'm working on a project to automate filling
these forms with information provided by the patient. Right now merging with PDFbox breaks
this.
> My current workaround is to just fill each form separately then combine them, but this
makes edits later down the line needlessly complex.
