So I am creating an editable printable recipe divider. On that divider, I've got a text field. I put text in it in the Oswald font and size 60, all is good. Selected multi-line. That works. But I need the text to be vertically aligned middle (got it horizontally aligned center, so that's good). That way, if the text is only one line, it'll be vertically centered middle; if two, still vertically centered middle. How do I get it to do this? I am currently using the trial version on a Windows computer if that helps. Thank you!
You have to set up the field to allow rich text formatting. After you enter the text, you can select it and display the Properties toolbar (Ctrl+E), which will have a More button, which will lead to a window with a Paragraph tab, which will include a vertical alignment button.
Although a solution has been provided for you, the fact is that Acrobat is absolutely not a layout program or word processor. The text features within Acrobat are primarily for after-the-fact text touch-up / edit. For what you are attempting, Adobe InDesign or Adobe Illustrator or even Microsoft Word would be a much better solution. And from each of those programs you can save/export PDF.
This answer is wrong. All you need to do is change the field to NOT multi-line. It will then vertically center.
You're right. Thanks for the simple solution
Only for single-line content. The moment you select 'multi-line', it aligns top.
