The form should work fine. Without seeing and examining the files it’s impossible to guess what’s happening here.
I guess the main factor is telling the file that the interactive text boxes should be a set font (corporate). When it opens in Acrobat, they are set to Times Roman... =(
What would be the best way to upload the files for you to see...?
Thanks for the reply.
It sounds like you're running up against InDesign's interactive PDF limitations: It will not natively include font information, default text for fields, color, alignment, etc. when you export interactive PDFs.
For short PDF forms, try our free http://www.id-extras.com/products/formmagic product, which lets you set all these things right inside InDesign.
Thanks for the reply TaW...
I will have a look...
Fonts can only be choosen later in Acrobat Pro. Any font in a form will be Times by default.
BUT be aware that you should not choose some CI fonts and limit yourself to the given standard font families. Every font in a form has to be embedded completely and allow editablity:
- Only very few fonts have the permission to be embedded comletely.
- Only very few of them allow the editablility.
- As you have to embed such a font completely it will increase the file size in a horrible way.
Don't do that.
And make sure you "reader enable" the form in Acrobat so the user can save the data they've entered.
