Default Having some formatting issues after converting PDF to .doc

I used www.pdftoword.com (which actually works better than acrobat pro and any other free software out there at keeping the original formatting) to convert a pdf to a .doc so that I could turn it into a form that could be easily used by some less experienced users at my place of work. Anyways, there were a few bugs here and there which I found a way to fix and managed to get most of the form working, but I am completey stuck with this issue.



Looking at the attached document, in section 13, there are 6 check boxes with corresponding descriptions. However, I need to add 2 more check boxes/descriptions directly below the 6, but theres something funky going on with the table and it wont show up...there is some table element in front of the text that is blocking most of it, but I cant select it or make it go away. If anybody can figure out whats going on I would greatly appreciate it.

Copy the contents of the two cells (individually) to another blank document.
Delete the entire row.
Insert a new row with two cells.
Reinsert the cut contents.
Add your needed lines.

Don't know what was happening, but that fixed it.

Also - To my mind, it would be quicker and neater if you just did without the table and used tabs instead - MUCH neater than using the space bar to align! Having said that - if you take the contents of the cell and paste them into a blank document, you can align them with tabs, and then paste them into the cell, too. Both methods will help with any alignment issues!


And Finally - if you need to do this with lots of documents, I'd suggest that you look into InfoPath - It's one of the MS Office programs, and it is for creating and filling forms!
