hello everyone. i have a strange problem: i want to create a pdf form with libreoffice. the problem i will describe only occurs in adobe reader, not in other pdf readers such as foxit, apple preview or evince. the forms are pretty small (0.5 cm high with times new roman, 9pt). in adope reader, what you type into the fields is not centered as in the others, but only half of the letters are viewable, it is cut in half. it seems that it is conversed to times new roman postscript, and if i change it with adobe products to normal times new roman, the problem will no longer occur. i dont know if that is a part of the solution. since i want my coworkers to be able to work on the form with libreoffice, i would prefer a solution with libreoffice. does anyone have an idea what might be the problem?

Text Type" property to "
Single Line". Alternatively, it may help to replace the standard text box by a "
The button to insert a "
formatted Field" (with german l10n: "
Formatiertes Feld") is next to the "
Text Box" ("
Textfeld") button. In the following screenshot, it's the third button in the second row.
