I would like to create a pdf with text fields that expand in height but when you are finish typing that they revert back to there original size so as not to cover anything up or flow the rest of my file off the page.

Is this do-able? I have Adobe Livecycle Designer but know little to nothing about it, have only tinkered. I also have Acrobat Pro X.

Any help is appreciated.

I have extensively searched for a way to do this, no such luck. I'm not sure it's possible, but I would love to be proven wrong :) –  JohnB Jun 25 '13 at 22:18
What do you mean, have you set the properties for the field ? –  Bala Jun 26 '13 at 7:08
Do you want to create the PDF Form ? –  Bala Jun 26 '13 at 7:18
@Bala I believe this is the behavior that Jim is looking to achieve within a PDF form: jsbin.com/ewekef/1/edit –  JohnB Jun 26 '13 at 11:13
Thanks everyone for responding! JohnB I checked out your link, know nothing about coding. How can I utilize the code provided at jsbin.com/ewekef/1/edit? –  Jim Jun 26 '13 at 13:01
