In Acrobat XI, how do I get text to align top left in a form field?  When I create a new text field, the text centers inside the field.  Thanks for any help.

Set the multiline option (under Properties - Options tab) to get the text

aligned to the top of the field. Horizontal alignment can be set in the

same location under the Alignment property.

I landed here looking for an answer to this for Acrobat Pro DC. When setting a text field to Multi-line, it aligns bottom and if I deselect Multi-line, the field aligns middle. I can see no way to set it to align top.

It is the same for me. There is an option to align text to the vertical axis (left, right, center) but no option to align text in a form field to the horizontal axis (top, middle, bottom).

I'm stuck on this one as well. In Acrobat DC the options for aligning vertically are grayed out.
