This is my first time using Acrobat to fill out forms.  Is it possible to make the text smaller?  I can't fit all of the necessary text on a line.

If you have Acrobat Pro, or a comparable tool you may be able to edit the field properties to change the font size. If you don't have Acrobat Pro, or the document is protected in some way, you'll need to contact the form creator. They are the only one that can change the properties of the form.

Tom Parker,

 

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question, but I don't want to change the 'form text' I wanted to change the font size in Acrobat, the text that I am typing on the page.

 

Thanks,

Teresa5EE3

Yes, that's what we call the form text. The person filling the form can't change it, that's a form design decision.
