changing font size in pdf forms

I'm trying to fill out a form that someone sent me as a pdf file. As I have the full adobe acrobat (reader and writer) I thought I'd try to fill this out on my computer rather than filling in the information by hand. The problem is that many of the boxes aren't large enough to contain the text. I don't see any menu option for changing the font size. I've looked through everything including the help button and still haven't found anything that lets me make the font smaller so I can fit in all the necessary info.
Does anyone know how to change the font size when you're filling out a protected form that someone else made?

All the fillable forms I have worked on had an autosizing feature IIRC. Never tried to change it.

Might give this a read

ctrl e might do the trick.
