Is it possible to have a text field have both auto font resizing and rich text format?

I am trying to make a field so I can bold or italicize within, but still have the capability to add as much text as I want with the font size getting small so that it all fits in the field.  It seems I can have the auto resize OR the Rich Text, but not both.   Is there a way around this?
Thank you.

You can't? Just to give you some context, I work as a graphic designer, I'm creating for the first time an iBook for a client and I have quite a few examples already.
A couple of vague examples:
- Imagine a diagonal animation from the bottom left corner to the top right corner of the page. I could do this with keynote or html, for example. Now imagine you want some text floating at the top left and bottom right corner.
I wont get into details, but the fact the animation is "cutting" through the text is very much relevant to the context.
- A page with a bold white title, a strong photographic lowkey background and some kind of interaction of top of it.
- A page with a keynote widget occupying almost the entire area, and a title in text format (that would superpose with they keynote but not with its graphics)
- etc etc
These are all impossible scenarios.
The actual interaction with text/images and interactive elements is nonexistent.
But I understand now that the interactive bits of the book must be separated from the other content - its context -which is a shame. And I understand it's not a bug, from what you say. The iBA interface shows the book like a PFD export, in a way, as well as the thumbnails at the Table of Contents, were all the text is visible. The actual pages have a different behaviour.
Thank you very much for the fast feedback. I will use the 'Provide iBooks Author Feedback' menu, as suggested.

  • When i go to send a new text, the text field isn't blank.  There is already text entered in the message body.

    When i go to send a new text, the text field isn't blank.  There is already text entered in the message body that I have to go in and delete before typing my new text.  this prevents me from forwarding anything through text because if I get something I wish to forward, selecting forward as an option always brings up the same junk just like when trying to send a new message.  How can i remedy this?

    Here it goes -
    1) Download iBackupBot:
    2) Plug phone into computer and run backup
    3) Use "Explorer" box to find Messages: HomeDomain/Library/SMS/Drafts/(null).draft/
    4) In "Null Drafts" there is a file "message.plist"
    5) Double click to open, (cancel the popup if you did not purchase the iBackupBot) and you will see the prepopulating message on the <string> line 6
    6) Delete the offending text, leave all code
    7) Close text editor
    8) Right click on message.plist file and select "Restore selected item(s) to device"
    9) File will be restored to your phone and it will restart itself.
    10) Voila! Now it is time to consider that Windows phone....:)

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    You can only locate your device when it is logged into iCloud and 'Find My Phone' is enabled, additionally the device will need to be switched on and connected to a wifi or cellular network.
    Unfortunately, you cannot activate iCloud or 'Find My Phone' remotely.

    Hey Gavinchick,
    Thanks for the question. I understand you are experiencing issues after updating your iPhone to iOS 7.0.6. If you have not already done so, you may want to restart or reset the device:
    iPhone, iPad, iPod touch: Turning off and on (restarting) and resetting
    If the above steps do not resolve the issue, you'll want to restore your device with iTunes in recovery-mode:
    iOS: Unable to update or restore
    If your device is not recognized in iTunes for Windows while in recovery-mode, see this article (specifically Step 4):
    iOS: Device not recognized in iTunes for Windows

  • Text field properties-Using the 'required' option in the text field properties.

    Using the required' option in the text field properties.
    The 'help' manual describes the 'required' function as this: Required Forces the user to fill in the selected form field. If the user attempts to submit the form while a required field is blank, an error message appears and the empty required form field is highlighted.
    My users ARE not submitting the form, they open the pdf, fill it out and print it. HOW can I, make a field "required', I don't want them to skip/leave blank specific fields. However, if I choose the box 'required' in the text field properties, and I begin filling out the form, I can just tab past that field that I've choose as 'required', and I do not get
    prompt/error message or anything, it allows me to save, or print.
    I WANT SOME TYPE OF message (similar to enter a company order form
    off the web, where you can't continue without filling out 'required' fields).
    Is there a step/option I am not doing?

    Then you are going to have to write some JavaScirpt to be executed by the "Will Print" document action to check all the requried fields, either by name or by the 'required' property and handle the issue of the imcomplete fields. You will not be able to stop the print, but you could display and error field so the user knows the form is incomplete and the printed form also conatains this information.

  • How do I get specific font to ALWAYS appear in text field whether user has font on computer or not?

    I am designing a simple form to be used as template for OTHER people to type up room signs. We would like the signs to be in a specific font that is not generally loaded on the average computer, and we do not want to have to distribute fonts to a gazillion people. My thought was to create a LiveCycle from, whereby the room user could type their name and title in the text fields on the form, and in theory, it would appear in the font I chose for the text field. I have tried various things, but it always gets substituted by the user's computer.
    Tried: Choosing "rich text" for field format in Object palette; choosing "Embed fonts" in "Save Options"; tried static form, tried dynamic form.  It could be that my test user has such an old version of Reader that it just CANNOT work.

    The restrictions are listed as "normal." And it does appear as embedded when I go to the document properties, though it didn't until I used it for the text on the form (as apposed to just using in the text fields.) And when another user opens the form, the text appears in the specified font, but once they type in the text field, it defaults to different font.
    BTW, it is an Open Type Font, if that makes any difference.

  • Is there a way to import data from a specific text field in a PDF form directly into a text field in a different PDF?

    I know you can import form data from an .fdf file. Is there a way to import a specific value from that .fdf file into a text field in a separate pdf form?

    So I want the FDF to export every time the user saves or closes the PDF. Then I want the import to happen every time the user opens the PDF. That being said, this all has to work with Adobe Reader. If this is possible in anyway, I'd manage this would require some time of script. Any thoughts?

  • Text fields combining when PDF is saved and reopened

    This has been a source of great frustration for not just me, but my coworkers working on the same documents.  I individually create text fields in a spreadsheet/table format either initially in MS Word and converting to PDF, or create them in Acrobat while editing the document. 
    After I save the document and open it later to edit, the text fields are combined arbitrarily, usually close or touching fields are combined, such as parts of a column, but sometimes single letters from other fields get combined.  At the same time, some other text fields will sometimes get split into individual rows. 
    Beyond looking messy when I want to edit these fields, the main problem i have in these cases is that whenever i try  to edit these now combined text fields, the text and/or format of the field will get jumbled, thus making it impossible to edit.
    Anyone else had this problem or know how to prevent it?

    Hi - yes Iv'e tried in in several events inc 'Initialize' anbd 'Layout Ready', 'Doc Ready' - just cant seem to get it to work.
    Here is the troublesome portion of the form, if you add some impact ratings the color will change, then save and close the form, reopen and the color formatting is lost

  • Text Field location differs on design view and preview mode

    I am using Adobe LiveCycle Desginer ES.  I am updating forms currently created in Livecycle 6 and 7.  I am noticing the text fields are lower on the preview mode than where I have placed them on the design mode. In design mode, they are perfectly in line with the other text.  When going to preview they are off anywhere from a couple centimeters to a couple inches.  I have started over with new forms and had this same problem.
    This issue mostly occurs when I have a text box with a large amount of text and I place text fields over the text boxes.  Has anyone had this issue also?  If so, is there a solution?  This issue never happened in 6 or 7, I am only seeing this issue in the ES version.
    Any help would be appreciated. (I am willing to recreate the forms, but that has the same issue also.)

    In version 7 there were updates made to the text engine. There were situations where things did not align correctly. To solve this there was an option added to allow you to revert back to the old engine. To do this go into the File/Form Properties/Compatibility then click on the button for the Revert Text Formatting and try your form again.
    Note that at some point in time you should update your form to use the new engine and stop using the version 6 of Reader/Acrobat.
    Hope that helps

    As suggested try a reset: Simultaneously hold down the Home and On buttons until the iPad shuts down. Ignore the off slider if it appears. Once shut down is complete, if it doesn't restart on it own, turn the iPad back on using the On button. In some cases it also helps to double click the Home button and close all apps from the tray before doing the reset.
    Also, it might help if you provide a little more detail on what you mean by "not working"

  • Splitting of text fields when using multiple fonts within a text field and exporting it to XFL.

    Hi All,
    I have been trying out  InDesign and exported files to XFL for use in Flash. If I use a single font for a text box then everything looks fine in flash, but if  I use multiple fonts for the same text box its split into multiple text boxes. For making this more clear I have attached an image.
    Any help to resolve this!!!

    Paragraph styles are tied to the paragraph, not the page.
    You don't say which version you are using, but here's something you could try in CS3 or CS4. Set up a baseline grid in the preferences to match the main pages. The spacing should match the leading of the body text. Make a special paragraph style (you can base it on the body text style) that you will apply to text onthe chapter start page, and as part of that style set it to align to baseline grid. Now for the trick. Select the  text frame onthe start page and define a custom baseline grid with the spacing you want. Save it as an object style, too, while you're at it. The strating text should align to the custom grid on the start page and the documetn grid on the next page.

  • TS2755 Problem:  Both iPhones share incoming and outgoing Text Messages.  History:  We used the same Apple ID for TWO iPhones.  Later we changed the Apple ID on ONE iPhone.

    Two iPhones were set up using the same Apple ID.  iPhone#2 was updated 4 months ago with a new Apple ID.  Both phones continue to recieve text messages for either user.  Texts from user 1 or 2 to a 3rd party are signed as the same user.  iPhone#1 is an Apple 5, iPhone#2 is a 4s.  All phones on the same Verizon account.  IOS have been updated regularly.

    Go to your imessaging settings and check to see that the phone number for device #2 is changed good luck.
