font, font size, background color preferences - Adobe Acrobat Macintosh

I tell you, this 7.06 drives me nuts. What was so simple in 5.0 now seems so ball. I am trying to add text to a form I downloaded, but everytime I create a new text box, the background color comes out yellow and the text comes out Helvetica, 9 pt, and I must individual change the background to white and the text to 12 point Times New Roman.

    Default font, font size, background color preferences

    I tell you, this 7.06 drives me nuts. What was so simple in 5.0 now seems so ball.

    I am trying to add text to a form I downloaded, but everytime I create a new text box, the background color comes out yellow and the text comes out Helvetica, 9 pt, and I must individual change the background to white and the text to 12 point Times New Roman.

    The only thing I can find in preferences is "small", "medium" and "large" for type, but it doesn't matter what I select, it still comes out 9 pt Helvetica. I can find no preference to change the color background - or, for that matter, the point size around the box, which I also must individually set for 0.

    I know there must be a way to set it up so that I have 12 point Times New Roman, a colorless background, and a 0 point box.

    Please, someone, tell me what it is!

    Thank you

    Sounds like you're simply using the wrong tool.

    I think you're using the text box tool rather than the text field tool.
