Have been looking for a work around for this problem for awhile now but can't seem to get anywhere. Is it possible to have fonts bigger than 72pt? If not that is a massive fail.

    Hi,

     

    Instead of using the drop down to select a pre-defined font size, you can just type in the size you want.  A 1000pt character will pretty much fill up a A4 page.

    I'm not sure I follow, are you refering to the zoom level in Reader? If so try putting "event.target.zoom = 300;" as JavaScript in the docReady event at the root of your form.  Or do you want the default font size in Designer to be 300, if so I'm not sure you can do that.  I don't have the font size reverting on my system.

    I use Acrobat.com, but there are a number Google Docs, if you use Acrobat.bat make sure you publish the document and that will give you a URL that you can paste here.

    Seems I don't have access, if you click on the file you will get a share document option.Share Document.PNG

     

    I'm using Designer ES 9.0.0.2

    I see what you mean now, it seems to be an issue with artwork PDF forms, I don't have a problem with a standard PDF form.

     

    I did get the font size to stick, https://acrobat.com/#d=RnEQbNdhe26z-bPYyVnEYQ is my sample.

     

    But I had to edit the XML Source (from the View menu), so the line;

     

    <body xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:xfa="http://www.xfa.org/schema/xfa-data/1.0/"><p>99</p></body>

     

    became

     

    <body xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:xfa="http://www.xfa.org/schema/xfa-data/1.0/"><p style="font-size:300pt">99</p></body>

     

    That is I added the font-size style attribute.

     

    Hope that helps.

     

    Bruce

    You have me there, and the website I used to refer to for this sort of stuff seems to be no more.  There are some limitations in how Acrobat handles images with transparent color but I'm not sure exactly what it is now, something to do with only using 8 bit color (I think PNG is usually 24bit), or maybe it was something about only using palette color.

     

    Sorry, I think you will have to start another thread.
