The Typewriter tool creates text directly on the document. Useful for adding text to PDF documents that do not have interactive forms. Once created you can edit additional properties using the Quick Properties or Mini Toolbars.
Note: Line breaks must be created manually - unlike the text box and callout, the typewriter is sized by the text and line breaks added to it.
To access the Typewriter properties go to the Properties Tab on the toolbar or right click (Mac: Ctrl + Click) on the annotation and choose Properties in the mouse menu or click on the edit button on the Mini Toolbar. The Typewriter annotation contains the following property settings.
Text Color - Sets the text color

Size - Sets the font size of the text
B - Makes all of the text Bold
