How to add tiny text to a PDF

Permalink: http://paul.us2uk.eu/?x=entry:entry141210-144058

Sometimes you may find that the minimum font size offered to you by Adobe Acrobat when adding a text box to a PDF document is still too big for your needs. Luckily it’s very easy to get around that problem. Here’s how to do it…

  1. Open a blank document in Microsoft Word
  2. Type your text and resize it to whatever you want, then copy it
  3. Go back to your PDF and use the text tool to insert a new text box
  4. When you see the flashing bar in the text box (indicating that Acrobat is waiting for you to type something) simply paste your text in and you’ll find that it pastes it in the original size.

That’s it, you’re done!

As you can see from the picture you can probably use this method to make your text as small as you need - so small that it’ll only be visible when you really zoom in to a document on your screen so, for instance, this could be useful for making comments on your documents which are practically invisible when the document is printed.

If you found anything on this site of use, interesting, or even mildly amusing then please consider dropping a few pennies in the jar to help us to take care of our disabled son who contracted encephalitis in 2007 at the age of 6 and who is now confined to a wheelchair. He is getting bigger as his mother and I get older, imagine that, please. Every penny we collect goes towards his upkeep, and towards his future care requirements.

Thank you.
