    There is no method on the Mac to move Word forms to Acrobat forms. You
    can take any forms you have, run them through the autorecognition to see
    what it can find. Delete the fields you do not want and manually add the
    form fields you do want.

    Personally, I find that Acrobat does a better job of recognizing boxes
    as places to automatically place fields. But it also creates too many
    fields. I also find that the automatic generation of fields usually will
    not create the field types I want. If you only have several forms, then
    manually creating form fields is not to burdensome. It is only when I
    have multitudes do I really wish the automation of fields worked better
    than it does :-)

    I think you are better off creating forms that make the information easy
    to find and easy to read than worrying about how well the get
    autorecognized. The forms will be used many times, they only get created
    once!

    The Form Field Recognition as well as the form editing is much improved in Acrobat 9 Pro!

    There is an Acrobat 9 tutorial on forms within lynda.com - Brian Wood is
    the host and he's very, very good ;-)

    If you have Acrobat 8 then it's virtually the same ...
