I've created a table in InDesign that contains multiple paragraph styles within some of the text boxes (shown below). I want to export this document as a PDF so that it can be reused and edited by non-InDesign users, while retaining the type formatting.
I've tried creating interactive text boxes in InDesign and using the form editor in Acrobat, but Acrobat seems to be very limited when it comes to text formatting. Is there any way to create an editable PDF, I suppose like a form, that allows the use of multiple paragraph styles within one text box?
Interactive PDF was never intended for that purpose, and it's not possible.
Steve are right.
a) use Iceni Infix or Serif PagePlus on customer side (very expensive) to redact PDF with a styles
b) use originally MS Word (not InDesign) for creation (many users have it soft to work with rtf/doc)
c) or you can redact forms in a PDF with Acrobat Pro after InDesign and have many problems with formatting.
Acrobat does not support Styles at all. Forget it.
