Allow large text fields for forms
The ability to accept large text inputs (large text fields) including the ability to upload images to include in these fields would be great.
As Rob mentions in his comment, you can do this today with PDF form fields. We’re planning to add this to our drag-and-drop interface, too, in a future release
Is there any ability to add line break (multi-line) to echoSign prefill? or tag form to replace a dynamic data table
The challenge with Acrobat pro is that the field is not expandable for printing; any overflow text is hidden and must be revealed by hitting the plus sign.

Yes this works if you go via PDF first and create multi-line text fields, then upload to EchoSign. But it is a tedious extra step!

Which future release would this be please? It's been nearly two years to the day since this comment was made :(
This is currently particularly annoying because when you place a large text box on a form, it appears to have multiple lines - yet when you go to fill out the form you realize it does not! At least you could make the placed text box not appear to have multiple lines until you get this feature released?

I second this too.... A text field can be expanded or enlarged even today, but all text entered into it goes on one line and the enter/return keys don't work for line-breaks.

Being able to do this with text tags in MS Word would be more convenient than having to dink around with PDF forms.

Apparently there is a way to upload multi-line custom fields, but only by building the original PDF in Acrobat Pro. For those that don't have Acrobat Pro and simply 'printing' to PDF, an option for the custom field control to set it as multi-line would be really useful
