Hello, and thanks again for your order!
The following video shows you exactly how to change the font size, style and color in my editable file:

Not All PDF Files are Editable
First of all, PDF files are not created equal. You can only edit the text in what we call the “editable” PDF files, meaning they have fillable text boxes for users to input information.
If you are using Adobe, this can only be set up using the paid version i.e. Adobe Acrobat instead of the free Adobe Reader.
Not All Editable Files allow Font Changes
Font change works only in editable files with “rich text formatting” enabled. How do you know?
Press Ctrl-E (or Command+E on a Mac) to bring up a toolbar called “Form Field Text Properties”.
If it doesn’t appear, this feature is not enabled. You can either edit the file with Adobe Acrobat, or ask the creator of this file to enable the feature for you.
In my shop, all files with name starting with “r”, e.g. “r-batman-template.pdf” are rich text enabled.
How to Change Font Size, Style and Color
Assuming the file is rich text enabled:
1. Type Ctrl-E. You should see the “Form Field Text Properties” menu popping up.
2. Change the font properties accordingly.
3. Save. Done!
