I'm creating a pdf form using
hyperref. After it has been filled-out, the form will be printed. I'm looking for a way to prevent the user from entering more characters into a TextField than will be seen on the print-out. The
maxlen option is not really what I'm looking for - it's more about space than number of characters.
Incidentally, I do get some of the desired results when using the
multiline=true option, at least in Adobe Reader 9 (which will be used): entered text breaks at the visual end of the TextField. Sadly, the number of rows increases instead. So I'm stuck with the same problem - only now it's vertically, not horizontally.
Any ideas? Thanks!
