Typing numbers and other characters in forms I-130, I-485, etc.

Hi everyone!

 

I'm guessing someone else has asked this question before. I'm filling out I-130, I-485 and related forms and in some of them, the fields won't let me type numbers, letters (if the field only allows for a date), or slash for N/A. How do I get around this? For example, when asked my status on Form I-94, it won't allow me to type F1, just the F. Same for the expiration date of authorized stay on Form I-94 which is D/S but the field only allows for numbers.

 

I've read somewhere that opening the file in chrome actually works for typing some of these characters. However, when I tried, it didn't save any changes to the file. Does it print them though? I do not own a printer (yet-I'm sure I'll have to get one soon for the multiple times I'll need to check everything) so I couldn't test it. 

 

Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

It's annoying hahaha. I just printed it out and wrote it in. I'm not sure what more you can do, and honestly it's probably easiest. 😊

You can type "none" instead of N/A if you're filling out in all caps, or "NA" if you're not using all caps. It'll stand out and be clear. For the other stuff:

On Chrome, go to Print, and instead of selecting a printer, select "Save as PDF". If it doesn't save as PDF then you're out of luck, but I believe it should save the inputs.
