    How to format text area so that it would wrap the text entered in PDF forms.

    Asked by russellbest on July 23, 2015 at 06:16 PM
    How do I format a text area (so a field that a user inputs paragraph text) so that when the submitted form is saved to PDF ("get PDF") the PDF displays all the text visibly in multiple lines, rather than running off the page in a single line? I want to distribute the PDF version of the submitted form, so it does little good to have the data saved on the backend but unable to fully display in the PDF.

    I have created a Form and added a Text Area in it. I have created a Fillable PDF form out from it and the text entered in the Text Area wraps making it visible in multiple lines and not running of the page.

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need any further assistance. Thank you.
