    PDF with text field doesn't scroll after being placed into InDesign

    phill_r Level 1

      Hello. I have a PDF form that has a text box. If people type alot of text into it, a scroll bar appears so that someone reading the form can scroll up/down within that text box to read all the data.


      I placed this PDF into a new InDesign file. When I export a brand new PDF, the text is still there, however it is no longer scrollable. If I highlight the text in the box, and drag my cursor lower, I can highlight 'invisible' text which is the text that someone would normally scroll down to see.


      Is there anyway I can 'retain' the scrolling from PDF form > Indesign > new PDF?


      Original PDF form was made in InDesign. Thanks!
