Fields move automatically with text blocks: link fields to blocks
fields stay in place and move with content of text blocks ev2
We aren’t planning on building this into our feature set at this point in time since it doesn’t fit into our current product roadmap. Please keep upvoting this idea so we can keep considering it every time we work on our roadmap. Should you come across any other ideas that suit your business needs, don’t hesitate to give them an upvote!

will allow it to follow the original place inside the Text block during and after editing

Definitely need to have the fillable fields locked to a text box etc. It looks really unprofessional when the fillable fields move around.
not placing the boxes correctly when I set it up
Adele Ireton commented
We should be able to place fillable fields as if they are "part of the text" so that any automatic formatting adjustments that happen as you add or remove text to other parts of the document the fillable fields would also adjust appropriately, instead of floating above the text in space.

a way to either lock the position of the radio button or have it move with the document text when a variable is entered.

Checkboxes are automatically aligned if the text is added or edited
If the checkboxes are added next to the text and then this text is edited, you need manually change the position of the checkbox. It should be done automatically

fields are turning up all banged up in completed document, pls lock fields to table cells we put them in!

as per the client " That said, this feels like a real shortcoming of the product / layout engine. There's some invisible "locking" into place that breaks the re-flow of fields when real-world variable value causes adjustment of the layout -- magically, we learn that some fields in the template are placed RELATIVELY and will re-flow while others apparently have ABSOLUTE placement and will NOT re-flow... but as a user, there's no way to see which is which. IMO, that's something that the PandaDoc product team should fix.

Text block detects field so you can continue typing after the field seamlessly.
+1 for this request to add the ability to make a checkbox "anchor" or "align" to the text in a template that we'd like that checkbox to be associated with. (i.e. documenting that the signer is agreeing to the associated text for terms and conditions or some proposal choices.)
In our experience, when you make a document from the template the checkbox is almost always orphaned and needs to be located and moved, causing inefficiencies and execution errors requiring more training. Here's a screenshot of the issue we run into: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PsZ_mKimEg5gHX3b4P3JzgxIpY6WDiIA/

Make it so that fields move automatically with text

Ability to lock and link fields to a certain text on the document.

Currently, dropdown, radio, and other types of specialty fields/variables sit outside and/or on top of text blocks. I would like to add these variables within the text so that they dynamically move with the text block and surrounding text.
For example: This proposal [DROPDOWN] an offer of sale. The dropdown would have "is" and "is not" as options for the creator. Next sentence: We offer this scope of services as a [DROPDOWN]. Dropdown options would be: "firm price (+/-5%)," "budgetary estimate (+/-15%)," "rough order of magnitude (+/-25%)."
The fields needs to expand/contract with the answer and stay aligned with the other text in the sentence/paragraph so that the sentence looks like normally typed text upon sending to the client - no funky spacing or showing up in the wrong place if the any blocks before this point expand down.

Lock field position within a table
Vladislav Avsievich commented
Let's say we have a table/pricing table with some columns and we have a field inside each cell. At the moment if an additional column/row is added the positions of the fields are not changed and the formatting is ruined. So the feature request is to implement the option to like pin/attach a field to a cell so that once an additional column/row is added the field changes it's position to the new position of a cell it was inserted in
