Adobe Forms Help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey there everyone.
I have some things i need to get done with adobe and have been able to figure out most of it except some a couple of things.
I am making a form and need to find out how to do these couple of things.

1st if i set a field as required it will make it red. but if i want to print out the form it will allow this to happen without the field being filled out. so how can i set it up to get have the print button only come up or allow you to print when the required fields are filled out?

2nd Has to do with check boxes. if i have multiple options for someone to check one how can i change this so only one gets checked and does not allow the other ones to be checked? so lets say its a yes or no question how can i set it up to be one or the other?

3rd has to do with text. Lets say i need the person to fill out questions with text. i have lines set up but when i run the wizard it puts a text box for each line and if you type a whole paragraph without switching boxes it makes the font really small. so is there a way to change this to make it automatically return or enter a new line after so many characters have been entered? just like word does or even this forum here does as it starts a new line each time you get to the end of the page?

other than that i would also like to lock the docs so the person cannot change info on them(im assuming i can just password protect them but i dont know how this will work with the person)

Hope it all makes sense to you guys if not just let me know.
Thanks

PS. i made sort of a sample pdf file. (attached)
