Text field does not expand in imported template


Level 2

Hi Guys,

I need to import a .pdf document template and work from there.  Some of the fields will recieve text values that are of a length that is not known at design time.  Therefore, the field needs to be able to grow.  I cannot get this to work.

If I do the same procedure in a form from I create from scratch (wrapping text field in in subform, set subform as flowed etc etc) this does seem to work.  But, when I apply the same steps in the template I just CANNOT get the text fields to grow dynamically.

Is it therefore only possible to design expandable fields in forms you build from scratch in Adobe LuveCycle designer or are there steps you can recommend for achieveing the same thing when working from an imported template?

Kind Regards,
