Topic: Losing Form Fields when I Update a PDF Form
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 54585

To update (major changes) to a PDF file with Form fields, I usually go back to the original document (MS Word 97), make the changes and recreate the PDF file. By doing this I lose all the form fields I created in Adobe and have to recreate them from scratch or copy/paste them from the original PDF file.

Does anybody know a way to export the form fields to MS Word and bring them back in the right place when I recreate the updated PDF file? I'm aware of the "Change page feature" in Adobe Writter 4.0", however if the changes to the Word document are significant, I have to move most of the form fields to the appropriate place. This is a pain in th butt.
