      Description

      Hi, I'm not sure if this's the right place to ask this question.

      I've been trying to fill an email value to a PDTextField by doing this:

       

      val field = acroForm.getField(name)

      field.setValue("example+verylongemail@email.com")

       

      It works okay with short email, but for long email:

      • The text is pushed down (wrong starting position)
      • A line break is automatically added at the dot(.)'s position

       

      This is the result:

       

      When I click on the field, the text looks normal, but when I click outside, it reverts to the image above

       

      When I click on the field and edit it, the text looks normal even after I click outside.
