We are trying to create a document with form fields and save the form fields as a template or layer to apply in exactly the same locations over other documents, please advise how we can do this, or type in exact co-ordinates for text box locations.

The document does not have boxes or lines and therefore are not being picked up automatically. (as the customer should only see the data in putted in the form)  but by hand is not exact.

Any ideas welcome.

Many thanks

If this is an AcroForm, just replace the underlying document via Document -- Replace Page. All your fields will remain intact.
