      Description

      When PDFs containing interactive forms are merged using Acrobat, fields with the same name are merged into one. That's different to the current behavior of PDFBox which renames to be merged fields so they have a unique name (see PDFBOX-3094).

      In addition Acrobat supports merging documents with interactive forms into collections when keeping the existing (duplicate) fields is required.
