Answers / PDF Forms
We need to set the global default font and font size for a series of pdf forms we are creating in Acrobat 9 pro. I have not figured out how to set this so I don't have to select ever form field to set it. What a pain!

Hi James,After you add a text field and select the font and font size, close out of the Properties dialog then right click on the field and select "Use Current Properties as New Default" from the context menu. New text fields will have those settings until you change them.Hope this helps,DimitriWindJack Solutionswww.windjack.comwww.pdfscripting.com
It won't change it for the fields that Acrobat automatically creates using the field auto detection tool.

Unfortunately, it seems to keep the option not to scroll, and the font SIZE, but it doesn't change the font type - I want to use Arial, and it continues to be Helvetica and I have to change each one individually.
