    I've been asked to create a form, on the form it has a fairly common layout such as the following:

    "I,  _________________, understand and comply................................."

    Where the person is intended to fill in there name...... Yet I cannot see a way to have that ____________ field in the middle of a text box.... how might I accomplish this as it seem fairly standard.  I'm sure it is possible and I am not just unaware (newbie here)

    Thanks for any help! :)

    Yes, it is possible. You can use Form Tools > Text Box and Power Tools > Free Text (HTML) to achieve that. Simply shrink fields to align on same line.

    Ahhh okay... if that is the case I will just ask them to rewrite it.  It might work well for a sginle line but not wonderful for a paragraph with a single field in the middle..... it looks disjointed and "unrelated" or choppy... at least any attempt I've tried to make it look like one coherent paragraph (much as you describe above), and it really doesn't look proper at all......
