      Description

      When filling the first PDTextField in a form the performance is slow. All other PDTextFields in the form are handled quickly.

      This code

      PDTextField field = (PDTextField) doc.getDocumentCatalog().getAcroForm().getField("Textfield01");
      long start = System.nanoTime();
      field.setValue("ABCD");
      long end = System.nanoTime();
      double difference = (end - start)/1e6;
      System.out.println(difference);
      
      field = (PDTextField) doc.getDocumentCatalog().getAcroForm().getField("Textfield02");
      start = System.nanoTime();
      field.setValue("ABCD");
      end = System.nanoTime();
      difference = (end - start)/1e6;
      System.out.println(difference);
      

      produces the following output

      9713.38
      3.904
