You can change the default font of Times, the alignment and colour of your Adobe form fields in Acrobat Pro. But you should only select system fonts.
Thanks for the reply!
Ok so how do i format the font and colour?
Thanks for the reply! but thats not editing it in indesign....
My concern is creating a form and then close to sign off, a field may need removed completely. I would have to remove it in indesign, re export and then do all the interactive fields in acrobat again?
I was hoping there was a way it could be done indesign.
We are creating a form with over 100 fields. If we create the form interactions in Reader, and then the client makes changes to the form (moves a field, adds text or more fields) we would need to update the indesign file... re exporting the PDF would then loose all of the form interactions.
If indesign (since CS6) has the option to create forms, it seems strange that you cannot control the font, size and colour of form items from within indesign.
Defaulting to times new roman clashes with the look and feel of the forms design.
Is there a way to define the fonts etc. of form objects within indesign?
Reader only allows filling in forms, not editing them.
Our FormMagic add-on lets you assign fonts, colour, size, alignment and more, all in InDesign:
The free edition allows for a 1-page, 10-field form.
