I created a pdf fillable form in LaTeX using hyperref text fields, then decided that I wanted to change the font of the whole form, so I tried to use XeTeX with fontspec. Unfortunately, when I do this, some of the TextFields no longer work.

For example, when compiling with XeTeX:


The first multiline box shows up correctly, but the remaining 3 boxes at the bottom don't. Has anyone encountered this and got it to work correctly?

  • Try enclosing the TextField in a minipage with definite dimensions to make sure that the spacing is right.
