Nope, PowerPDF has the Comb settings unavailable too.

There must be a "trick" to setting this? I've never had to do this before so
am baffled as to why this setting is not available.

Cheers, Karen

Subject: [WebAIM] PDF Forms - Can't get the Comb setting to work

Hi Everyone:

I've looked online and can't find any useful information on why the ability
to create a text form control as a comb with a character limit is not
available in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. The one offering was to put a border
around the text form control and then identify the form control as a comb in
the Options tab.but even doing that, the comb settings in the Options tab
for a text form control is not available.

I've tried checking and unchecking things but I just can't identify the text
form control as a Comb with a limit of characters.

Am using the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Pro DC with all updates

Am now going to check PowerPDF in case I can set this there, but it is
strange that I can't do this in Acrobat.

Any ideas? Help?

Cheers, Karen
