I have a fillable adobe pdf form with some text fields to add comments, which on occassion is filled in with text overflow.  The problem is the text overflow can't be viewed after it's locked.  Is there a way it can be set up so it can be viewed after it's locked, or am I searching for something that just can't be done?  I can't find anything on the forums about this.

I have it set up so the document locks when the manager adds their digital signature with the following script in the console...getField("Section Manager Signature").signatureSetSeedValue({lockDocument: true, flags: 128});

Thank you!

Thank you so much for the reply!  This really helped!!  Now I can give the option of setting up the comments box to either block the user from adding more text or using the auto with the text getting smaller to fit in the text box.
