How can I create large signs with fillable text fields that auto-scale?

I want to create PDF's (or other ubiquitous file format that can handle graphics) that can be printed as store signs. The layouts are created in Quark or InDesign, and I want the only editable parts to be the text fields. I want the final files to be easily opened and edited on any computer with typical programs installed, nothing fancy or expensive required. I've tried using Acrobat Pro and the only problem is that setting the font size to "Auto" doesn't expand nicely for the larger signs - the default font size is 12. If I have a field that covers 1/3 of a page, I want the text to cover 1/3 of a page.
I've checked out some of the other PDF editors listed on alternativeto.net, but came up with nothing that solves my problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.
