Customize text on original PDF

    Can you tell me if I can force formatting on text boxes? Such as make them centered or set a type size for all boxes? Everything is populating the pdf a left justified and some boxes I would prefer centered, and some text is larger than others depending on box size. This makes it a little harder to comfortably read and use the info as I need to. I would like everything to print as 8pt type. Is that possible? I checked the box properties but I don't see the ability to do either centered or locked type size.

    Also, can you change a form element type without losing the box shape? For example, change a Short Text element to a Long Text element?

    It is possible to customize the Text Alignment and Font Size in the original PDF but you can't apply it for each individual text, only for all. On the other hand, the custom PDF can be customized individually.


    1. Load your form into the PDF Editor then click the Blue Circle icon on the top right corner


    2. In the settings, you can change the Font Size and Text Alignment


    Unfortunately, you can't switch the field type without deleting it. You must delete the first field and add a new field. Note that deleting a field will also delete its associated data.
