Hi,

I'm working in Acrobat to create forms, and as there are quite a few fields I wanted to resize the right tool panel so it's easier for me to see what's going on. However, it's not letting me drag to resize and I can't see any other options in preferences (though I could well have overlooked the obvious solution).

Is resizing this (or other tool panels) possible? If it helps, I'm using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, Version 2018.011.20035 on MacOS High Sierra (v 10.13.6).

Thanks in advance!

Hey Tashacarolina,

I believe you are referring to Tool-pane under the "Prepare form" feature. As mentioned in the correct answer above, you can not resize it. By default its set to a particular size, and there's no such preferences of Acrobat that can be changed to decrease or increase its size.

Other than that, you can just hide it by clicking on the small arrow-

Thanks,

Akanchha

This has been driving me crazy. Why isn't this resizable? (Or at least possible to move the form stuff itself to a different pane.) I could have sworn this used to be possible.

 

UPDATE: So apparently I can see the fields listed if I go to the content pane, but there is no way to get the form field properties from there to edit them.
