> 2. Try to change font from default to Times New Roman using format character

How are you attempting this? If I right-click on the form control text box while in design mode > Control... > General tab > there is a Font field where the font of the input text can be set. It is also possible to set the Text type to "Multi-line with formatting".

> 3. try changing text box to formatted field

Right-click on text box > Replace with > select the type of object required. Does this do what is required? Both work as expected here under MacOS 10.6.8 using v4.3.0.3 Build ID: fcd3838c4097f7817b5b3984fd88a44e1edd8548 (x86).

Status set to NEEDINFO. Please change the status back to UNCONFIRMED once the request information is provided. Thanks.

Sorry, I have just realised that this report is against the Drawing component and the title mentions PDF (presumably for editing). If this is indeed the case, please disregard comment 1. 

I can still change (and save) the text input into a PDF form text box field under the indicated version, but I can only do so one line of text at a time. I am not sure that editing a PDF allows changing an object type (I am not even sure it is possible). Status still probably needs to be NEEDINFO to get developer input in to this, but if you could clarify what this report is actually about that would be great. Sorry for any confusion.
