Hi Gilad,

please don't contact the developers directly. Adress your questions to 
the mailinglists, so that everybody from the community has the chance to 
help and to learn as well.

I've cc'd my answer to the users-list.

I'm not an acroform expert but you have to link the new field to the 
page it should be rendered on. I guess it has to be done by using an 
annotation widget.

A simple example woiuld be great.
