When filling out text boxes of an interactive PDF (created with InDesign CC 9.2.1) in Adobe Reader X, the font used is always Times Roman or such. Whatever I've tried so far, I fail to make the interactive text boxes use a specific font. Should be the same font that's used for the rest of the text on the page. During exporting the PDF, I've instructed InDesign to embed all font glyphs.
Is there a way to get around this problem?
That has to be done in Acrobat Pro.
You have to work on it after exporting to PDF in Acrobat Pro and change the font there.
BUT: Don't choose exotiv fonts, use the normal standard form fonts, otherwise the file size will increase, because every font in the form must be embedded. Another problem is that older versions of Adobe Reader or Acrobat or some other possible PDF readers only support the standard form fonts, like Helvetica, Times, Courier in Bold, Regular, Italic, and Bold Italic. So it is better to submit to this limitations.
