I was looking to add a box to a pdf file in LaTeX. I tried to use TextField, but that only allows an input on one line. Is there a good command to make an box of more than one line and can be edited by clicking and typing in Adobe Reader?

Welcome to TeX.sx! Usually, we don't put a greeting or a “thank you” in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Accepting and upvoting answers is the preferred way here to say “thank you” to users who helped you. –  Kurt Apr 20 '13 at 3:36

You can specify the height of a text field and set the multiline option to true. Try this minimal working example (MWE).



\TextField[name=multilinetextbox, multiline=true, width=\linewidth,height=1in]{}
