I have a form that has a section that needs to be able to go into auto numbering/sub bullets,etc as needed (like an outline format). Is this possible?
Also, within that same section, there are cases where the user wants to copy from a Word document, keeping the same outline type format, into the form. I've tried but it gets distorted. Is there a way?
By default when you drag a textfield onto the form it has a plain text format. If you select the textfield and go to the Object > Field palette you can change the format to Rich Text. This allows shortcuts for bold (Control+B), etc at run time. Also when the form is opened in Reader/Acrobat if the user presses Control+E (edit) then they can set the formatting. While this will improve the experience of pasting from Word, you will still have problems with numbered lists and bullet points.
