I'm trying to create a PDF template in which the text entered in a form field on page 1 will automatically propagate to a designated spot on page 2. Anyone know if this is possible in Acrobat?

By designated spot, you mean you have another text field on page 2, and you wish it has same value as field on page 1, or you want to place a plaint text at specific location on page 2?

correct, I have another text field on page 2 and I wish it to have the same value as the field on page 1 - the challenge is, the text in the field on page 2 will need to wrap to fill the space correctly based on the value of page 1.

You can only do that if the full text is a part of the same field. Then you could insert the value of the first field into that text and it will adjust itself correctly.

Sure. Copy the field from page 1 to page 2 and it will happen automatically. Generally speaking, any fields with the same name will always have the same value.
