Hi all, is it possible to configure a dynamic (livecycle ES3) form to allow the user to input both normal (default) AND bold font into a text field? Also, if different a colour font was required to highlight a point - is this possible? Appreciate cany help in this matter. Thanks

Yes to the bolding, but I believe no (unless someone can correct me) on the highlighting. For the bolding you must first change the Field Format in the Object Library window. Once that is enabled then in both Reader (if you extend the correct rights) and in Acrobat you can select the text you want, right click on it, go to "Text Style" and then change the font of just the selected text to bold. I put a few screenshots below of what it will look like. Highlighting is a different beast in Adobe. Highlighting specific text is not an option that Adobe allows and within Livecycle I do not know if there is a method for letting a user highlight specific text within a field. If you try to utilize the Highlight method in Acrobat or Reader it prompts you to created a printed version. You can highlight the entire field itself with some Livecycle JS, but not specific text.

1) To highlight certain text right click the highlighted text and go down to Hyperlink...

2) Select the Font tab and change the colour.
