I have created a form in Acrobat Professional 8 containing various form fields to be filled in. I want the end user to be able to change the font and colour of the text in each form field before printing it out. The end user will be using Adobe Reader - not Acrobat.
How can I do this? Also, can it be done so that users can open and edit the pdf in Adobe Reader 6, or would it have to be a later version?
Any help or suggestions much appreciated.
I have simply creaed a pdf document (from a background image created in photoshop) in Acrobat and added a couple of text boxes. I just need to know how I can make it so that people who open it in Adobe Reader 6 can edit the text in the boxes - changing the colour and the font if they wish to.
I know this should be simple but I'm not getting anywhere at the moment.
I have figured out how to do this at long last - no thanks to Adobe customer support who told me it can't be done - and the answer was simple as I suspected... To enable users to edit the attributes of text in a text field in Adobe Reader you simply need to check the 'allow rich text formatting' box on the Options tab of the text field properties when you create the text field in Acrobat. Then once the pdf is opened in Reader, simply Control + E to bring up the properties tool palette and you can change font, colour, size, spacing etc.
Thought I would just post this in case anyone else is trying to do the same thing.
