Topic: Word to PDF or Create new form in Nitro

Iím really new at this. I downloaded a trial version of Nitro.
I have a form I created in MS Word. I used the items in the Forms toolbar. I have items like the following.
Last Name First Name Initial
I used the Text Form Field to create the areas for the user to insert his names and initial. These areas can grow larger as the user enters data. Either I want to convert the Word Form.doc to a PDF format, or I want to create a PDF form from scratch.
When I converted the Word Form to a PDF, the form lost all of the Text Form Field entries. I canít figure out how to create them again, or their equivalents, in Nitro.
When I tried to create the PDF directly in Nitro, I have the same problem; I donít know how to enter an area where the user can insert data. I use the Form command, but I canít get it to stay in a specific spot, and since it wonít stay, I canít enter data into it.
Where in the accompanying Help Manual for Nitro does it show me how to enter an area for the user to enter data, and that data may grow larger than the initial area?
Why, when I converted my Word Form to a PDF using Nitro, did it renumber my pages? My first Word page is now the last page in the PDF?
