Topic: 3rd Party PDF/FDF Form tool?

I a currently developing a large PDF that is populated via FDF. I am creating the PDF by first using MS Word and laying out the field names leaving spaces for the fields, this word document is then distilled into a PDF. I then add the fields and drag them into place around the field names on the PDF. My bug bear question is when I have to add a new field that doesn't fit in with my current distilled field name layout I have to start with a new distilled word document and then copy and paste the fields into this PDF, this aint so bad but when I paste them in the fields do not remember their previous positions.

To cut a long story short is there a 3rd party tool out there that makes creating the Forms easier in respect to form layout and design?
