I've created a simple PDF form for a client but the text boxes are not picking up the settings in the properties screen.
The box is OK when you are just typing the data in and I am able to change the properties of this text, but if I copy and paste text from Word I am then unable to change the colour, size or font to match what I would like.
I've attached the form, it has two text boxes in the lighter orange section. The left one has the text that CAN be changed (at least for me) while the right one has some text pasted from Word that now cannot be changed.
I hope someone can shed some light on this.

I'm running Acrobat Pro 7.0.5 on Mac OS X, but this is also happening on a PC with Acrobat Pro (not sure what version this is).
