I am trying to make an interactive pdf form or an indesign form for a classified section in a newspaper. We use a 26 character limit per line for pricing reasons. What I need is for a text box or field to flow continuously yet limit each line to 26 characters. Right now we have an interactive pdf form that has numerous lines that limit 26 characters per line but they do not flow so you would have to tab or cut a word short in order to go to the next line, the other problem with this is you can't copy and paste a full classified ad since it cuts it off at 26 characters. Any input on how I can achieve the the above question would be greatly appreciated.
There is a way in Acrobat to have text flow from one form field to another form field while entering the text. You can set your character limit per form field, and have as many fields as needed. But you cannot copy text and paste into the form field and have text flow throughout.
Here is a link that describes how to set the properties within Acrobat.
