Formatting Radio Buttons

Hi,



I am using:



-Windows Vista

-Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 Extended

-Acrobat comes with LiveCycle Designer ES (version 8.2....)



I am a newbie who just completed the initial three introductory exercises in the LiveCycle help.



My question is, when I create a radio button with:



-Object: sunken square

-Layout: caption on top

-Border: solid



How do I center the sunken square radio button within the solid border of the radio button object?



Using the Paragraph Palette, I can format the caption to be in the middle of its solid borders. I can't figure out how to center the sunken square inside of its solid borders. At present, it is heavily biased to the left hand side.



I note that on the Layout Palette, the margins are:

-Left: 0.0394in

-Right: 0.0394in

-Top: 0in

-Bottom: 0in



To recap: I am able to center a caption within a radio button object. I would like to know how to center the radio button itself within a radio button object.



Regards,

Kevin

Kevin,



I am unaware of a method of centering the caption and RadioButton simultaneously. A workaround could be achieved by turning the caption to None and setting the left and right margins to equal values. Equal margins will centre the RadioButton. Place a Text object above the RadioButton to replace the caption.

Hi Steve,



Thank you for replying. By playing with your idea, I found that the right margin governed. If both margins were set equally, then the RadioButton might not be centered. By either increasing or decreasing the right margin, I could center the RadioButton.



I like your idea of simply eliminating the caption and placing text above.



I want to create several questions for a recipient to rate a service from one to five, with five being the best. Knowing that the leftmost RadioButton is worst and the rightmost RadioButton is best, I don't require having a caption with its numerical value for every radio button. I can just place the numerical values at the top of the list of questions, and proceed from there.



Thank you for your help.



Regards,

Kevin
