    Text box heights on pdf forms not tall enough

    Asked by bussenmar on March 23, 2011 at 04:30 PM

    When entering text in a pdf from, a bottom margin is being added that raises the text that is being entered, so it's being cut off in the middle. How do I remove the bottom space or adjust the text box height, so the charachters are fully shown? Problem is with IE

    Would you mind sharing the link to the original form? I need to take a look at the original form to find out how to fix this issue.

    Hi,

    Adjust the height of the textbox form via the form builder. Go to Setup & Embed > Preferences > Form Styles > Inject Custom CSS and then add this piece of css code:

     

    .form-textbox {

    height: 27px;

    }


    You can put any number in place of "27", it's up to you but 27px resulted to this PDF output:

     

     

    Hope this helps.

    Neil
