Fillable PDF: Can't resize Long Text Entry box in PDF editor

    Asked on March 04, 2019 at 01:19 AM


    I have created a form. Whenever I save and then want to edit the PDF later on, the layout has changed a bit. Not a big issue but still, not expected.

    The annoying thing is that I would like to change the size of some text box. Normally, I get to access this by the number of row a text box shall contain as a default. Unfortunately, I can't see this option now anymore whereas it was there when I first edited the PDF.

    Any idea ?

    Hello Liam, Unfortunately, I cannot recall if it was possible to change number of lines for fillable PDF form earlier. This is currently possible when creating an online form. But, I will submit a feature request for this option. Our developers will review and make the change if possible.

    We will keep you informed with updates on this matter.
