    Am I correct in assuming that to go from Word to a fillable PDF file (form), I first need the Word document created using the form features like a check box, text box, etc., etc.?

    Hi kweaver,

    Word formfields don't convert to fillable PDF fields, so you'll need to allow whatever space the fields will need, then insert them into the PDF afterwards, using PDF-editing software (eg Acrobat).
