Enlarging a Form Field, Moving several Form Fields and adding a Form Field to a PDF document - Anyone interested in a gig?

I need to move several Form Fields and the text associated with the Form Fields in the attached PDF document.
I need to expand one Form Field.
I need to add a Form Field.
I bought and installed Nuance's  Power Advanced PDF, but there are just some things I cannot get it do.
I am on a very short deadline here and maybe this is a gig I need to hire someone to do.
I am open to suggestions.

Hi Bill,
I'm not an expert at creating or modifying PDF forms. I've had only modest success at it with products such as the one you have, Power Advanced PDF, as well as others, like Adobe Acrobat, PDF Editor Objects, and PDF-XChange Editor.

I started writing this post to ask you what fields (and associated text) need to be moved; what field needs to be expanded and how (horizontally? vertically?); and what field needs to be added and where, along with all of its properties. At that point, I decided that it would be easier for someone to work with you in a screen-sharing session, since describing all of that could be difficult (this falls under the "picture is worth a thousand words" mantra). This is especially true since you're on a very short deadline. My gut feel is that you could have the modified form that you want in an hour or so via a screen-sharing session, but that would be with someone who is better at it than I am. :)

So, I think your idea is a good one — post a Gig. This is also a very good candidate for a Live (pay-by-the-minute) session. Neither Gigs nor Live has an EE-provided screen-sharing feature, as far as I know, but you could use one of the many screen-sharing products out there (most freelancers will already be able to do that).

Good luck on the project! Regards, Joe

Just so happened I had Power Advanced PDF on my workstation. I have no idea why? (We use PDF-X editor which will do some general tasks easily enough.)

But alas I was able to do what I need done with Power Advanced PDF. Problem is it took 4 hours and someone who really understands PDFs could have probably done it in an hour.

Next time I will figure out how to post a gig!

Hi Bill,
I'm glad to hear that you were able to get the job done with Power PDF Advanced, albeit four hours worth of effort.

Posting a Gig seems to be straightforward, although I've never done it (I've been only on the Freelancer side, not the Client side). The page is here:
https://www.experts-exchange.com/gigs/

The "Create a Project" button sends you to a page that looks pretty easy to complete. One warning, though — read the Client Agreement carefully:

It is a legally binding contract. Make sure you're OK with it. Regards, Joe
