I can't find how to change font/style/color in Acrobat Pro Extended 9. I've tried selecting the text in a text box before opening the Propertis bar, but it's not activated. When I had Acrobat 8, the font/style/color were easy to find. I'm stumped.

Thanks,
Linda

Select your text box and bring up properties. Then go to the "Appearance" tab. There you can select your font size, color and type.

Thanks. I'd swear I tried that last night and my Properties Bar only had grayed-out choices. Now it works just as you said here. I wish I had asked the question earlier in my project last night :-)
