No. You'll need to edit the pdf after it is generated and use other tool to make fields editable.

The PDF files made in Jaspersoft are fully protected from further editing for a purpose of preventing piracy and data stealing. In order to have them editable, you should create them with different software. There are many of them actually, I use the tool made to edit pdf forms, as an example. Adobe Acrobat is allowing to do so as well, yet it will be a thing only if you have the subscription already

Added a "net.sf.jasperreports.export.text.isInputForm" to switch text field and static text component to pdf form text fields. Just set this property to "true" on static text or text field

@hozawa I am trying to use your net.sf.jasperreports.export.text.isInputForm

it says urls do not exist. Does this still work? Is it user error on my end?
