Need the ability to assign fonts to Interactive Text Boxes
Please, please, PLEASE update the Interactive Buttons and Forms functionality to include the ability to assign fonts to the Interactive Text Boxes.
Currently, I have to hope that the design I have made is 100% final approved before I can create the final Interactive PDF and spend additional time fine-tuning the fonts and paragraph alignment. If there are any changes after that, I have to go through the entire process again, losing valuable hours, depending on the length of the document. The ability to change only the font size is useless.
But if the functionality was included in the InDesign palette for the Buttons and Forms, or available via the Character palette, I would assign everything once, during the initial design, and it would carry though no matter how many iterations were created.
To have the same functions that are available within Acrobat makes sense to me, otherwise, may as well just use Acrobat to produce the forms, as there is so much more functionality and flexibility. Will have to start calling you "Half-a-job-Indesign".....!!

This is indeed very much helpful, if implemented. Now, every interactive PDF that's produced out of InDesign, needs an extra round of editing in Acrobat.
There's a whole list of Acrobat functionality I'd like to see implemented within INDD, but the ability to select the typeface is by far the most wanted.
And have the ability to add placeholder/editable copy.
