How do I get text to fit in box, like text wrapping? Im using Acrobat Pro DC.

My text doesn't fit within the text box. How do I resize it to make it always fit? Is there an acrobat equivalent to the "text wrapping" button in excel?

I'm using acrobat pro dc on a MAC.

Thank you!

Go to Tools - Prepare Form, then right-click the field, select Properties and you'll see the Text Size option under the Appearance tab.

How? Can you please take me through this step by step?

I did not create this form. When I open it I use "edit PDF" but I'm not able to locate "Auto" on the fonts.

PLEASE EXPLAIN.

Took me a few other videos/web resources to piece it all together.  I'm in adobe pro.  I click tools then the second vertical section  "forms and signatures"  has a prepare forms button.  This gets me on my fillable form created previously.  I can then right click the textbox, to select properties.  Where I can then apply the great suggestions to change the font size to auto on the appearance tab and allow multiple lines (remove scrolling long box) on the options tab.  Thank you all!!

None of the prior comments answer the original question, in my opinion. My suggestion is make the vertical size of the text field bigger and check Multi-line checkbox on the Options tab of the Text Field Properties pop-up. What this does is wrap the text to another line if the data is so lengthy that it requires more than one line to fit in the width of the text field.

Sounded like this is what you asked. Hope it helps.
