Document Processing
I am a fairly new Adobe Acrobat 5.0 user. I tried to research the following, but was unable to come up with any solutions. Hope you can help.

Scenario: I create a form field using the Form tool. I format the field with borders and 14 pt text. I then fill out the field with the necessary text. After the form has been filled out, I change my mind about the field's appearance (e.g., remove borders and reduce text/text size to 9 pts).

Problem: When I modify a form field that already has text in it, the text disappears from the field after the modification is made.

How can I modify the appearance and keep the text from disappearing.

Please advise ASAP.
