  • How to create Dynamic Text Fields?

    I am new to Foxit PDF (having previously used Adobe Acrobat Pro). I created an interactive form today from a MS Word document that had several tables throughout the document (so I don't know if that might be the problem). The tables would have 4-5 columns and I would like the option to be able to type text in each cell (and be able to expand that cell) and also be able to tab to the end of a row (like in MS Word) and create another row. I'm not sure if I can do that - can I?

    I was able to setup one of the rows with the ability to type in multiple lines (I found that in Properties) and there is a + button that appears. However the text is still not readable and you can't see everything that is entered.

    Any ideas on what I am doing wrong? I am hoping that I don't have to recreate this form from scratch

    Many thanks on any useful suggestions!

    Hi Kim,

    You may open the PDF form that you created from Word, then open it with Foxit PhantomPDF, then go under "Form"->click on "Run Form Field Recognition". After that you may use the form tools under "Form" menu to do some manual adjust.

    For an interactive form, you may first click on Hand tool, then type in the info.
