Controlling formatting in a text field
Question: I want to be able to have multiple fonts in a single field. Is this possible?
Answer: Yes, of course. When you create a text field you indicate it can contain Rich Text.
Fields created with Acrobat: Create a Text Field. In the Text Field Properties dialog box, select “Allow Rich Text Formatting” from the Options tab.
Fields created with LiveCycle Designer: Create a Text Field Object. In the Object palette, uncheck “Allow Plain Text Only” in the Field Tab, and select Data Format – XHTML in the Binding Tab.
Once you’ve enabled this, your form field can contain a variety of formatting options, which are controlled by the Properties Bar in Acrobat/Reader.
