I want to set the text field font size to adjust automatically with a maximum limit of font size 9

Hi,

I have the option to set the font size to auto, which will adjust the font size automatically based on the text content in text fields (used in prepay forms). Alternatively, I can manually set the font size to 9 or any specific value. However, what I specifically need is to set the font size to adjust automatically within a range, with the maximum font size capped at 9. This means that the font size will automatically adjust between 1 and 9, depending on the content.

I require this functionality because sometimes I have a large multi-line text field with only a short text, such as "Hi". In such cases, the text appears excessively large on the PDF, which looks unattractive. Therefore, I want to ensure that even for short text like "Hi", the font size remains at or below 9.

You could do it with a script, by using the number of characters in the field for reference, for example if characters are between 1-5 set size to 9 if between 6-10 set size to 8...etc you can do it using textSize property like this validate script:

var str = event.value;
if(str.length >=1 && str.length <=5)
event.target.textSize = 9;
else if(str.length >=6 && str.length <=10)
event.target.textSize = 8;

Hi, that approach won't work for my situation. I have various text fields of different sizes, and the inserted data lengths vary as well.

So what are your conditions for text size?

I would appreciate it if Adobe could implement an automatic text field font sizing feature with adjustable parameters. For instance, allowing to set the font size to automatically adjust within a range, such as between sizes 3 and 9. This would greatly enhance usability.

I'm having a problem with auto font, in that it is creating multiple different sizes. I only want to use it when there is two much test to fit in a text box. Not make the text as large as possible.AB.png

TIP: the maximum text size is relative to the height of the field.

😉

Hi, yes, I'm aware of that. The text field height, for example, is set to 0.92cm. This means the maximum text font size can be 18. However, I want to limit the maximum font size to 9 and the minimum to 3 for that text field.
