comment hyperref: how to format text in a forms text-field
btw, the application I'm thinking about is producing "advertisement sheets" as preformatted PDF where only the "price tag" needs to be typed in before printing.

@cfr Exactly. Obviously, a font would need to be completely embedded to be used in a form field. Answers in Adobe forums tell that much. I know how to get pdftex to completely embed a font. Alas, so far no success to actually get that font to be used in a form field. Maybe an encoding problem? So the question really is how to use an embedded font in a Text Field reliably.

Maybe TikZ \foreach defines a group? In this case the definition would be local to the body of \foreach.
