    A pdf locks in the size but if you use livecycle designer (only in the extended version i believe) you can create fields that expand as the user types; I cannot attest that if a field expands, the text won't fall off the screen, i do not believe it has the capability to wrap in a pdf created from livecycle, but i may be mistaken
