I’m using Writer 22.214.171.124 on Win10 x64.
Sometimes it’s important to prevent text scrolling inside a PDF text box; in other words to prevent the form user from typing more than they should into the field. In fact this becomes critical when the final form will be printed or flattened.
In the Text Box Form Control Properties, there is a ‘Max. text length’ parameter. While this works to limit the number of characters that can be entered, it’s not a scalable, adaptable approach, given the potential variability of fonts and text box sizes & proportions.
What I’m looking for is a control that, once exported, would effectively result in the Adobe Acrobat Text Field Property ‘Scroll long text’ being unticked if the PDF was examined in Acrobat.
I don’t think it’s possible but wanted to ask. This question applies to both single- and multi-line PDF text boxes.
