I'm creating a wedding place card template with 4 cards per page. Each card will have a unique name field (e.g. Name1, Name2, Name3, Name4). Now I want to create multiple copies of the same page in the same document, such as 10 pages with 40 unique name fields. I also want to repeat this with various design backgrounds. Right now I do this in 2 stages:
- Pages -> Extract -> Drop the extracted page back into the original document multiple times to get all the pages I want. At this point, all the Name1 are linked together.
- Forms -> Edit -> rename each field so they are unlinked. This takes a long time. Is there some kind of "Record Action" like in Photoshop I can use?
After Stage 1, if I wanted to create another PDF with a different background but same layout, I go to
- Page -> Replace -> Choose the one page PDF as my new background, and then do this for every page.
Is there a faster or better way to do this? Thank you in advance for your comments.

I would like to know more about that option. I am quite lost with this issue and would be highly interested in creating multiple copies from a template.
You can use this tool I've developed to achieve it. It allows you to select whether or not to rename the fields in the duplicated pages:
Based on your answer and the nomenclature, I was able to do further search and found that you provided the solution in this thread, it's exactly what I'm looking for:
