PDF Text Fields Lose Alignment
« on: February 16, 2017, 08:07:20 pm »
Hello everyone,

I have a document that I'm creating that I would like for the numbers being generated in some PDF text fields to be right aligned. It seems that no matter what I try, when the document is exported to PDF, all of my PDF text fields are left aligned. Is there some way around this I'm not seeing?

Thanks

A long shot that I don't know will help but - go back to your original document and try making the text frame in question larger. I have found that alignment can suffer if the frame is not rather generous in size.  Will it fix the problem? I don't know since your issues is the pdf rendering, but try an easy test?

I made the field large enough to encompass the entire page...no dice. Always left-aligned.

So much for my theory. Maybe someone else has an idea.
