Now you can set fonts/typeface directly in InDesign while creating PDF forms. This feature is now available in latest InDesign CC version. Please upgrade to the latest release.

This really needs to be brought up to speed with the options in Acrobat. If you want to use the new form features then you have to export the artwork as a PDF, then make further adjustments in Acrobat. Then every time you need to adjust the artwork, go back and do the same.
It's twice the workload for easy enough functionality. We shouldn't have to do this. Please consider doing this ASAP.
