    I already have an extensive consent form that requires a signature and a few other fields to be filled in.  I would like to have customers click a link on my website and sign the forms electronically and return them to me securely.  I see the signature widget and could add other standard form elements that will be completed by the client.  But, how do I get the main body of text put into the form?  Do I have to type it all over again?  Do I covert the text to html format and then cut and paste it in?  Convert the form to a fillable pdf.  I have the form saved currently as a word document as well as a pdf file.  Any suggestions or direction over the preferred version of the form to create as well as the easiest way to copy in the text from my existing form?

    Our forms are easy to build. You can just grab all the necessary fields.  The best version should be the web based version, instead of the PDF one, this is to avoid that users have to download the form, fill it up and send it via email. The web forms can be filled and submitted immediately. But it's up to you.
