Is it possible to display custom properties in PDF form fields?
Yeah you will need JS to do that. The link below discusses the subject.

Yes, if you have PDM.
I have PDM but can't make the form fields update with the PDF document's custom properties. I have no problems with updating custom properties in MS Word or Excel so I don't know why I can't get it right for PDFs.
Bluebeam provides a mechanism for entering custom file properties into SolidWorks models. The custom properties can then be included into document properties within the generated PDF.
You can pull the form field info from those properties.
I have no problems adding custom properties to PDFs (the custom properties get updated when files go through PDM workflows) but I am unable to push the custom properties values into PDF form fields.
I gave the form fields variable names and thought they would get updated but they didn't - do I need to add JS scripts to PDF?
Thank you, Elmar, I can do it with JS
