Changing a font used in a comment ?

Sep 23, 2009 3:02 PM


when you are using comments (sticky notes, callout or textbox) in a PDF file, you can modify the style of text (bold, italic, etc.) but it is impossible to modify the font used for this comment.
Is this possible to add this functionality with the SDK ?

Would it be possible in the future to add this feature in the next version ?

Thanks in advance.

    Do you mean in a script, or just in Acroabt?

    Because you can change the comments' font by going to Preferences - Commenting - Font

    I don't see any screenshot.

    If you want to post an image you can't do so by attaching it to an email response. You must do it from the forum itself.

    My workaround is to open MS Word, type a word, change the font to say 24 (or larger if you wish) copy the text and gp back to your comment in the pdf and paste.  You can now type with that font. If you will be doing lots of commenting you can create a template text box in the Adobe pdf with different fonts using this method and simply copy and paste whichever you need. This way you can have different fonts in the same text box.
