Hi there

 

I am sorry to hear that.  Please try to download the PDF form to your computer locally and then open it with Adobe Acrobat DC and go to Tools > Prepare form and then right click on the field to go to field properties.

Note: The above steps would work if the author has not locked the editing of the PDF form. If the PDF form is locked for editing, there isn't much that can be done.

Hi there

 

We are sorry for the trouble. As described you want to use superscript and subscript in a PDF.

 

We need some more information for a better understanding:

 

  • Are you working with PDF form with fields?
  • Do you have Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (Freeware application) or Adobe Acrobat DC (Paid subscription)?
  • Are you on a Mac or Windows Machine and what is the version of the OS?

 

If you are working with PDF form fields and have Adobe Acrobat DC , Please follow the steps below:

  • Go to the field's Properties, and under the Options tab tick the "Allow Rich Text Formatting" box.
  • Now exit the Form Edit mode, click into the field and press Ctrl+E (For Windows) Cmd+E (For Mac). A properties toolbar will open with various settings. One of them is to set the text as superscript.

 

Hope it will help.

 

Regards

Amal

Thank you! I'm working with PDF forms. I clicked "Fill & Sign", and it said the author had defined fields for me to fill. I have Acrobat DC. I'm using Windows 10.

I could not find field's Properties. I tried to right click in a field and there is no Properties. Could you tell me where to find it?

Some of my fields are editible after using fill and sign. I have NOT signed the file. When I hover over the field, some will give me and Ibeam and I can edit.  Others just give me a new text box field.

Hi @Madena262512001hfw 

 

We are sorry to hear that. Is this an issue with a particular PDF file or with all the PDFs? Please try with a different PDF file and check.

Also, make sure the application is updated to the recent version 22.2.20212. Go to help > check for updates and reboot the computer.

 

Also, please share the affected PDF file so that we can check it at our end.

 

Regards

Amal

Good morning! I will do all of the suggested items you mentioned. I would just like to point out that this problem will exist within the same PDF file. Some text (using the AB icon) can be edited, while some cannot, regardless if a signature has been added.

Thank you,
