    The closest field that you can use to achieve such is the Full Name field from the Quick Tools of the Form builder page.

    Or if you want to have the dash included, you can also use the Phone Number field. Just remove the sub-label also, and make it accept alphabetical inputs by disabling the Input Mask property of the field.

    Regarding your other concern: 

    Is there an option to for a text field to look like "Comb of Characters" similar to Acrobat PDF?

    We would be able to better assist you if you will have a separate thread for every question you have to avoid confusion with the answer so I have this concern to a new thread which you can follow by clicking this link.

    Thank you.
