I've searched everywhere for an answer.
How do I print a fillable PDF form from Adobe Reader (version 9.3.3/WindowsXP32-SP3) such that long text fields with the "+" sign displaying in Reader gets expanded to the full text I entered?
In lieu of such a capability, I'm not sure how much utility such a fillable PDF form has.
There is nothing you can do to address the problem, the form was poorly designed by its creator. It can only be fixed in Acrobat, not Reader.
Unfortunately this is true with *most* fillable PDF forms authored by the US Govt (in this case the USCIS)
Given the "official" nature of these forms, I would feel nervous filling out the entire fields, only to be chopped off while printing and being considered "incomplete" by the US Govt agency issuing the forms.
Any words of wisdom/advice? Avoid using those fillable PDFs? Use some alternative software that can render the entire text printable? Other ideas?
