#StackBounty: #pdftex #pdf How to create a fillable PDF file with many identical-looking but distinct boxes

Bounty: 50

I want to make a document with dozens of identical looking boxes (as in first name, last name) that will be filled with different text.

If I copy/paste my code to generate the boxes then the resulting PDF will have the property that once a box is typed-in the other boxes will fill with the same entry.

Is there a quick/smart way of doing this task?

 documentclass{paper}
 usepackage{hyperref}
 begin{document}
 begin{Form}[action=mailto:me@univ.edu?subject={The form},method=post]
 TextField[width=5cm, height=0.6cm]{Type Last Name} 
 vskip .1in
 TextField[width=5cm, height=0.6cm]{Type First Name}
 vskip .1in
 TextField[width=5cm, height=0.6cm]{Type Last Name} 
 vskip .1in
 TextField[width=5cm, height=0.6cm]{Type First Name}
 vskip .1in
 end{Form}
 end{document}
