Adobe Livecycle Designer ES 2 - how to repeat page layout in the form?

How would you repeat page layout design randomly in a form, means how the same page layout can be repeated on non-consecutive pages of an LC Form? For e.g. I want to repeat Page1 layout on Page 5 and Page 6 of an LC Form. How to do that. Please reply.

You use Master Pages to set layout that you want to use on multiple pages.
Design what you want in a Master Page and then assign it to the pages you want in Object>Pagination>Place: and choose On Page> whatever you called your Master Page.

  • Adobe LiveCycle Designer 8 Beginner

    I am very much new to adobe form design tools. Now my company wants me to develop an eForms system using Adobe LiveCycle Designer 8.
    The requirements are like this
    All pdf forms will be saved in the file server.
    Users can enter data directly into the fields of the form.
    The form can capture data the user enters, and provide interactive feedback such as when an employee enter his roll number his department should be filled automatically in the form.ie form provide dynamic data
    The form should be able to process the user data directly to a database.
    Can anybody give some good reference so that I can start the project?
    Thanks in advance,
    dev

    I have a vital form that clients fill out, which is passed to many people in the company along the workflow. The form is a Planner and we have in the following PDF, Word Doc..
    Well before, the Planner.pdf was originally created in Word, since most people have access to Word.. but evolved to a PDF form created from the Word Doc via Adobe LiveCycle Designer 8.0 w/ User Rights enabled so that the form could be filled out and saved using Adobe Reader.. which was a step better than Word.. being that it is free. But this needed to be easier and more to the point b/c some clients don't particularly like installing the latest version of Reader, even if you provide them the link. Nor do they like saving the form, filling the form, and attaching the form to send back.
    My goal is to have the client fill an HTML version of the form, submit and be done with it, but everyone in the workflow be able to easily receive the filled Planner as a PDF form.
    So some months ago I ran into this post Chris Trip, "Populate Livecycle PDF from mySQL database using PHP" #8, 22 Sep 2007 4:37 pm
    which uses the command line Win32 pdftk.exe to merge an FDF file into an existing PDF on the remote server, and serve this to whoever.
    My problem was with shared hosting and having the ability to use the Win32 pdftk.exe along with PHP which is predominantly used on Linux boxes. And we used a Linux box.
    so i created the following unorthodox method, which a client fills the HTML version of the Planner, all field values are INSERTED into a table in MySQL DB, I and all filled planners that have been filled by clients to date can be viewed from a repository page where an XML file is served up of the corresponding client, but someone would have to have Acrobat Professional, to import the form data from the XML file into a blank form.. altoughh this is simple for me.. I have the PHP file already created so that when a Planner is filled and client submits. >> the an email is sent to me with a table row from the repository of the client name, #, email, and a link to d-load the XML file,
    But I also have the PHP files created so that the Planner can be sent to by email to various people in the workflow with certain fileds ommitted they they do not need to see, but instead of the XML file beiong served up i need the filled PDF Planner to be served.
    I can do this locally with ease on a testing server, but I am currently trying to use another host that uses cross-platform compatibility so i can use PHP and the pdftk.exe to achieve this, as that is why I am having to serve up an XML file b/c we use a Linux server for our website, and cant execute the exe.
    Now that I am testing the other server (cross-platform host), just to use them to do the PDF handling (and it's only $5 per month) I am having problems with getting READ, WRITE, EXECUTE permissions..
    Si guess a good question to ask is can PHP do the same procedure as the pdftk.exe, and i can eleminate it.
    or how in the heck can i get this data from the DB into a blank PDF form, like i have described??

  • I have adobe xi pro, but i can´t edit a form create with adobe 8.0, the message is this form can´t be edit with adobe, use adobe livecycle designer. need I to buy another program?

    I have adobe xi pro, but i can´t edit a form created with adobe 8.0. The message is: this form can´t be edit with adobe, use adobe livecycle designer. need I to buy another program?

    If the form was created using LCD then it can only be edited there. This
    application used to be bundled with Acrobat Pro, but that's no longer the
    case. So if you want to edit this file then you need to purchase it, yes.

  • Problem with expanding textfield in Adobe LiveCycle Designer

    I've got an urgent problem with Adobe LiveCycle Designer and I really could use some help. The problem is that I'm trying to get my textfield expandable, but whatever I try, it's not working. What I'm trying to get done is that you can fill in a textfield, and when there is more text than the size of the field, the textfield expands to make the text fit in the field.
    I tried a whole lot of things:
    placing the textfield in a subform
    expand to fit (height)
    allow multiple lines
    allow page breaks
    flowed/positioned
    etc.
    The strange thing is, that no matter what I try to adjust, I can't change anything in the pagination tab. Maybe that is the problem, but I don't know what to do, to change that.
    In the examples of Adobe itself (Purchase Form) is an example of a textfield that sort of behaves as I want it to, BUT the problem is that that textfield in the subform has to be triggered to appear by a button (add comments) and that is what I don't want. I want the textfield to be visible from the beginning. But in that example you CAN see the pagination tab and make changes in it.
    I searched a lot in the Adobe Helpfiles of Designer, and I even bought and read/studied the book 'Creating Dynamic Forms with Adobe LiveCycle Designer', but still I'm not able to get this done.
    Is there anyone who can help me?
    Thanks in advance,
    Sterre

    I am creating my first .pdf with no training. I first converted a word doc of our form into a .pdf. Modified everything and thought I was the "bomb" for figuring it out. Then I tried to use the form and where I had "allowed multiple lines" I realized that it would allow that but not display it or print it except for what was showing.
    In researching for a solution, this site said to use "expand to fit". After much frustration I realized that this feature is only available if you created the form from scratch in adobe.
    I have figured out, somewhat, how to create the form and get the field to move with the text but I need the entire form to adjust to the input. Can't have one specific field expand into the rest of the form.
    I did some more research on this site, and it looks like the solution has something to do with 'subforms'. No idea what to do.
    If anyone knows if there is a way to do this with a converted doc (since I already have that completed) I would GREATLY appreciate it. If it isn't possible, could someone walk me through how to do it or provide a reference for a "barney style" walk through?
    Appreciate ANY assistance you can provide. THANKS! Guess I need to sign up for an Adobe Pro class. BTW I'm working on LiveCyle 8.0

  • What is the latest version of adobe livecycle designer for mac?

    Hello Guys,
    I am new for Adobe LiveCycle Designer.
    Can some one guide me what is the latest version for Mac.
    Thanks in advance.
    Regards
    HARI

    Hi HARI,
    Yes, that short video is demonstrating LC Designer (albeit an earlier version).
    The video is showing how to create a dynamic form, where you can add and remove items at runtime and have other dynamic features. Do develop this type of form you will need LC Designer ES2 (current version 9). As I said this runs on Windows, so you would need a virtual machine on the Mac to run Windows.
    LC Designer comes with Acrobat X Pro for Windows (Note it does NOT come with Acrobat X Pro for Mac). See http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/matrix.html.
    You also need to consider what your users will have to fill in the forms: Acrobat OR Reader. There are some features that will not be available in Reader unless you Reader enable the form. For example users with Reader will not be able to save their data in a form that has not been Reader enabled.
    More info on that here: http://assure.ly/gYyYc2
    You can also see some short sample forms here, which will give you an idea on some of the dynamic features: http://assure.ly/eEPuCM. All of these were created with LC Designer.
    Forms that are created in LC Designer are in accordance with the XFA specification. They are wrapped in a PDF wrapper that allows then to be opened in Acrobat/Reader. However they are not like a standard/native PDF and some standard Acrobat features, like commenting may not be available.
    You can also create forms directly in Acrobat, these are called AcroForms. They can be used to collect data, but generally don't have the same level of dynamic behaviour that you saw in the video.
    There are plenty of examples on the forums, so I would recommend that you explore these before you make any purchase. There can be a learning curve, depending on whether you have scripted before. 
    Hope that helps,
    Niall

  • Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES has stopped workin

    After many projects with LiveCycle Designer, I get the following error message when trying to open any file that was created with the program: "Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." Operating system: Windows 7. I removed and reinstalled CS4 Master adding back Acrobat 9. I also downloaded and installed 32-bit version of the executable file vcredist_x86.exe. Please help!

    That could be due to a number of reasons so it's hard to pinpoint what caused the issue.

    Excellent directions and help on this subject, Thanks Jared & Gretchen.
    I must be missing something critical >>>
    I have a large employee review document (34 pages) with 23 sections. Each section has a feedback area with expanding text fields, each of the sections is in it's own positioned subform. I have grouped the sections (and subforms) on each page into a flowed subform. The document itself is saved as an Acrobat 7 Dynamic form. My problem...the sections do not Flow. The expanding text boxes work just fine, but they do over-run the sections below.
    I have reviewed the comments above and I can get it to work with a single page document, just not with a large - long document, everything over runs.
    Any ideas? You will be held in very high regard!

  • We were using Adobe Livecycle Designer 7.0 for creating forms, what is new product replacement?

    We were using Adobe Livecycle designer 7.0 (circa 2004) for creating our own dynamic forms.  The program has since failed to work, we cant locate the old disk.  What is the new product replacement that will allow us to build new forms from scratch with our own fields and data collection?

    LiveCycle Designer no longer comes with the Windows version of Acrobat Pro, but it can be purchased separately (soon): http://www.adobe.com/products/livecycle/tools/designer.html

  • How to install fonts in Adobe Livecycle Designer

    Hi All,
       I want to install new fonts in adobe LiveCycle designer.
       I installed this fonts in Control Panel >Fonts>File -->Install New Fonts and it is possible to see them in  Livecycle Designer but when i preview the adobe print form this not work.
    I found in the installation of the ADS configuration Guide this informations.
    Adobe document services require access to fonts that are installed with the Font Manager Module. This module contains a number of Adobe bundled fonts installed in /usr/sap//j2ee/os_libs/adssap/FontManagerService/fonts/adobe.
    You can also add fonts obtained from other vendors. The types of fonts you can add are OpenType® (.otf), TrueType® (.ttf), and PostScript® Type 1 (.pfb/.pfm).
    So the question is how can i install new fonts so as to use in Adobe Forms?
    I will appreciate any help and documentations about.

  • How to activate script debugging in Adobe Livecycle designer

    Friends,
    I would like to know how to activate script debugging in the Adobe Livecycle designer. I need to debug the scripts written in the script editor.
    Thanks and Regards.

    Syntax checking is available in designer from version 8.1 onwards.
    If you want to enable in Adobe Reader then go to Edit --> Preferences --> JavaScript --> Enable the option Show console on Errors on messages.
    Apart from it the alternative way to debug the scripts is to use xfa.host.messageBox and check the values.
