Hi, I am on a MacBook Pro using InDesign CS6.
I am creating a form in InDesign that I would eventually want to export to pdf to add the fields so that it can be filled out electronically.
I have 2-4 text fields on one line as shown in the image attached.
I want the first edge of the line to be right after the : colon. Ex. Name: ___________
rather than have the line underneath the whole field.
I am getting this:
Name: Number: Fax:
but want this:
Is there a way to do this or do I have to create separate text boxes?
Thank you for looking..
There are several methods to accomplish it:
You can create the form fields in InDesign CS6 or CC which will be imported into Acrobat Pro for refinement. You can do this with the Buttons and Forms panel.
It's not necessary to create rules which Acrobat Pro turns into form fields. You can design the form fields yourself which is more flexible.
Here is a video which introduces you to how it is done:
