How can I change the typewriter font in Adobe

Hi experts,

I can't recall, but I thought in the past we were able to change the font and color of the font when we used the typewriter feature in Adobe Acrobat 8.0. At present, it allows to make the font bigger, smaller and change the spaces between the lines. You cannot choose a specific size font such as 8, 9, or 10, etc. and you cannot change the color or the type of font, e.g. Calibri, Times Roman.

One computer has Version 9 Pro Extended, and it is able to do all of the above. Is there a way to fix this or are these all of the choices we have?

Thank you.

I have come across a very lengthy post on the Forum which has some interesting aspects to it:

It talks about various ways of bringing up these options some of which  suggest that it is a rights related issue. One user reports that they fixed it by enabling the Typewrite tool for Reader in the document, another set this on becomes available when he uses a blank PDF or copies comments out into a new document.

I have no way of testing or validating this but I guess it is worth checking out.

In A9 you can bring up the Typewriter toolbar from the Typewriter submenu under 'Tools', this gives you the option to change font, colour and size...

I am not sure why this would not be included in A8, maybe worth double checking.
This is what it looks like: TW toolbar

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Thanks captainreiss,

That is the way it looks like in v9. But, it looks like the attached jpg in v8. Maybe I should run a repair, but it seems to be that way in all of the v8s. I would upgrade to v8, but I think they will only allow v10, which I am definitely not going to go to.

In other words, there are no more options to the right of the line spacing icons.
So when I see a icon for the color and drop down for font etc. your bar simply ends?
