Forms with Auto size text
« on: February 02, 2015, 02:20:14 am »
Hi,

Is it possible to create a PDF with a form where the text auto resizes within the field. I've searched for hours in hopes to find out if Scribus is able to do this.

The closest I can find is this post http://forums.scribus.net/index.php/topic,737.msg3435.html#msg3435 but it doesn't really explain how it's done. I'm still not sure if it was a glitch with that person's pdf or if it's possible.

I have latest version of Scribus 1.4.5 (Mac)

Thanks!

I don't think it's possible due to how PDF forms are supposed to work.

Thanks for your reply. I know its possible in Acrobat Pro. I'm hoping that if its not a feature of Scribus currently it might be added in the future.
