    Fillable PDF Form: Font style is not same with the original form

    Asked by Presby on March 22, 2016 at 12:30 PM

    I'm not a big fan of the Times Roman Font that is used in the fillable PDF form. Is there a way to select a different font? The blue shaded fields with red frames are also not very appealing. JotForm colours are nicer, brown/grey and orange. Any chance to have a better looking form?

    When you create a fillable PDF form, it uses Times New Roman font as a default. Hower, I will escalate this to our developers as a feature request.We will notify you via this thread if there is an update.

     The blue shaded fields with red frames are also not very appealing. JotForm colours are nicer, brown/grey and orange. 

    I assume that you have  mentioned the colors that  you see in the screenshot below. It is not possible to change those colors because Acrobat Reader uses that colors on the textbox. You can choose different PDF Reader, such as the  Foxit reader.

    Please, check the guide below for more information about creating fillable PDF:
