I have been asked to create a form, where one can fill in their answer, (this will be a PDF, I am creating the form in InDesign). For some answers, three paragraphs will be required. Is this possible?

  • What do you mean with three paragraphs? Three different form fields? or just a field with a long text? When you create the form in Indesign will be just the structure, the form itself will be done at Acrobat I guess, and there you can decide how the answer field will be. Do you have a visual example to get an idea about what do you need? – Danielillo Jun 18 '18 at 19:49
  • "Online use"... Please be aware that all interactive PDF features (such as forms) are likely to be not working properly outside Acrobat Reader (or a Acrobat Pro)...You should be aware of it! A PHP webpage would probably much safer (I know, it's not as easy as making a PDF...) – Vinny Jun 19 '18 at 6:54
