How do you allow the user to pick a specific font size when he fills up a field on a PDF form?

is it a feature of Form Designer?

or it is a Reader feature?

or it can't be done at all?

Hi,

As far as I know you can not allow the user to choose the font size while filling it. You can do these things either by scripting or by selecting the appropriate option from the LiveCycle Designer.

Select the field you want to set the font type/size. Then click on windows -> font. You will see a font window in the designer.

Now click on the font or paragraph depending on your preference. Then click on the triangle shape adjacent to it. You will see different options are coming up. Click on the Edit Value as you want the value of the fields to be customized. After that select any font type/color/size.

You can use JavaScript to let the users enter a font size.

Try this script in the enter:event of a text field.

Why not just use a rich text field and when the user enters the field hit Ctrl -e that wll bring up the field properties toolbar.They can choose whatever font and font size they want from there.

Just tried the RichText (for the first time), it's very nice.  Thanks for the suggestion.

Is it possible to script the "Line Spacing" (as shown in the "Paragraph" pallett) ?

I mean, use javascript to change between "Single", "Exactly"...etc

thanks
