I have a long pdf form that is not editable, that we need to be able to fill in.
I tried many online/freeware pdf to word converters, and none of them produced results at all similar to the pdf file.
What I ended up doing is converting the pdf to a separate png for each page, bringing it into Word, setting it as behind text, and placing my TextFormFields in front of it.
This worked very nicely for a few forms, ranging from 2 to 4 pages.
However, now I have a 19 page form. I brought in all the images, and am in the process of setting up the TextFormFields, but the document began functioning VERY slowly. Is this because of the images? They are not so big, around 100 kb each.
I'm sure text would be better than images - here is a link to the form, maybe someone else will have more luck with converting it.
Or else, using images, is there any way I can make the document stop crawling?
Is there a better way to do this?
