I doubt you're still working on the same project anymore, but for future
reference (unless anyone replies with a better solution) I'm building my
file in Acrobat. I set up the layout and background in InDesign,
exported to .pdf and then used the text field tool in Acrobat to create
my field. Acrobat doesn't have the bug that LiveCycle has. Best of luck.
I'm having the exact same issue. The text field tool does not seem to
allow a font size larger than 72pt. You can set the value larger than
72pt, but the program will not recognize it when it converts to .pdf.
The .pdf preview and the .pdf file created do not have a larger font
size, it seems LiveCycle 8.0 is defaulting back to a smaller size. Has
anyone discovered a fix for this or maybe a workaround? I need a file
that has a 120pt font size that can be edited by other users in the .pdf
