Thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for! I found an even more refined version here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/does-anyone-have-a-script-to-make-text-flow-to-a-second-field-when-first-field-is-full-first-field/td-p/9175658?page=1

Nermander:
But I guess the solution with a script changing focus will only work if you are adding text at the end of a field.

If you are inserting text in the middle of the field, changing the focus when the field overflows will not give the desired result.

Yes, this turned out to sort-of work, but it defeinitely has flaws. I realize now that what I really want is a simple multi-line field with a set line spacing and first line indent. However, when using PDF Text Fields, none of the settings or paragraph styles stay in effect when I export. It looks fine in Scribus, but it's a mess in Reader (see images).

In Scribus:


In Reader:


I have attached another document which I'm trying to mimic, where it works like I want it to. The field in question is the first on page 2.

Yet again thankful for any help  :-*
