Hi all,

I'm trying to create a form in Arabic (Right-To-Left) on Adobe Acrobat XI Pro, when adding an item (Text Field for example), I can change the text direction on the header BUT I cannot change the direction of the item itself or locate the label on the right side of the text box, so that the whole form would appear "Right-To-Left" when I'm done with it.

Any idea if this is possible?

I want it to look like this:

Instead of this:

1381457_pastedImage_11.png

As try67​ mentioned, Forms Central doesn't support Arabic.

You may design your form in MS. Word or Excel then convert to PDF using Adobe PDF Maker, but I strongly recommend that you design your form in Adobe InDesign ME as it will retain all your Arabic options within the form, I personally have done many Arabic forms this way.

I didn't know. It's already part of Acrobat XI Pro. I usually find it fast and reliable. Thanks anyway

Are you aware that Adobe stopped the development of this website/application, and doesn't support it anymore?

I'm not sure there's an answer to your question (although I'm not that familiar with it, I must admit). From what I can see there's no RTL support in it.

I would recommend you design your forms in another application, one that offers better RTL support, like InDesign.

What do you mean by "label", exactly? Form fields in Acrobat do not have such a thing. Are you adding static text next to them?
