I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro 2017 and have created a form filled document.  I would like to align the typed text to the bottom left of each field.  How is that done?

 

I don't see that option in Properties/Options.

 

Also when I create a form the default font is always Helvitica and very large font size.  Is there a way to set the default font style and size?

At the options of the field properties you can set the alignment to left.

That only applies to text fields with the RTF-option enabled.

You can't set vertical alignment. It will either be the center of the field for single line text, or the top of it for multiline fields.

"I have it set to left alignment and RTF but when typing on the form it is center not bottom."

You must not "set to left alignment", you must use JavaScript to set the defautStyle property on a text field with the RTF option enabled.
