Font Size getting smaller to fit the text field size

Dear Experts:

I got a fillable calling card form. Everything is ok with the exception of the following.

I got the following setting for the text fields that form part of the mail address, i.e.


Both text fields 'FirstName' and 'LastName' have got the setting ...
'Auto' for the Font Size on the 'Appearance Tab' of the Text Field Properties.

But the entered text does not 'shrink' to a smaller font size to fit the text field size.

Why is this so?

Help is much appreciated. I have attached a sample file for your convenience.

Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Was the form designed using Acrobat, or was it designed using the LiveCycle designer that comes with Acrobat?

Hi puppydogbuddy: ok, the link clarified everything for me. Thank you very much for your help. I am using Adobe Acrobat , not the life cycle designer. As described in the forum (the link you provided), I have to set the font size to 'Auto' and additionally checking the 'scroll long text' field.

Now it works, Again, thank you very much for your help and the time taken.
