PDF Form Properties on Mac
After adding the form field, you can move it to a new location, or resize it by dragging the edge of the box. You can also modify form fields' properties that apply formatting, options, appearance, and actions on the right-side panel. Different form fields or boxes have different properties. The following example of Text Field is for your reference.
- Open a PDF file with interactive fields, select the text field you want to edit, right-click it and choose Properties to open the right-side properties panel.
- General: You can set the other common properties on each of the available tabs as needed, including the following:
- Name: Each form filed has a unique name.
- Tooltip: Tooltip text appears when the mouse hovers over the form field, which is used to give instructions on how to fill in the form field.
- Form Field: Specify the visibility and editing permissions of the form field.
- Options: Set alignment and the default value of the filled-in text. You can also set spelling check, multi-line, scroll long-text, rich text formatting, or limit of characters available for that text field. Check the "Comb of characters" to build a comb filed which is meant for typing characters in independent boxes.
- Appearance: You can set the colors of the border and background, the font/size/color of the filled-in text, text format, and the calculations of the field.
- Actions: Specify the actions associated with the selected form field and the trigger that initiates such action.
