InDesign CS6 how to set justification for form text field?

Jun 15, 2012 5:40 PM

Hi everyone,


I've been playing with the ability to create form for PDF file but I haven't figure out how to set a center justification for a text field.  By default it's left.  Same thing for font, the one selected in InDesign while creating the form isn't used when editing the form in Acrobat.


Do I need to create a paragraph style with a specific name to preserve both attributes?

    InDesign CS6's forms features are great, but you're looking as version 1.0 of the feature. Those features cannot be set in InDesign.


    Furthermore, if you try to pick a font other than the standard ones at the top of the menu, don't expect that your form users will be able to pick those fonts when they open up the form in Reader or Acrobat. I'm pretty sure that custom fonts are not stored in the PDF form.
