How do I deselect a radio button in Adobe Acrobat Professional?

I am designing a fillable form using Adobe Acrobat Professional and have a set of radio button.  My problem is, when I was previewing it I checked one of the radio buttons to test it out and then saved the file.  Now every time I open up the PDF, that radio button is selected.  I need all radio buttons to be "off" when someone opens the file.  How can I do this?

If you have already saved the form then you cannot reset it. There is no uncheck state that you can revert to once it is saved.

If you work with radio buttons it is good practice to include a 'Reset Button' (from File|revert), but this does not work when the form has already been saved.

Use the form as a master and do your testing in a test file saved from it.

For your solution you simply enter a new value (such as 0 or off) into the export value. Unfortunately you have to then do the a) for all and b) reset to your desired value afterwards so it is quite laborious...


re above >>you cannot reset it. should have been >>you cannot automatically reset it.
