The Forms panel needs to be massively expanded to cover a far greater range of functions so you can reliably recreate an interactive PDF each time to reflect design updates rather than double handling and redoing the form each time in Acrobat. At the very least, the Set Tab Order panel should be resizable to allow much easier drag and drop of fields or become part of the Forms panel.
