  • Trying to converting fillable word documents to fillable pdf-when opening in Reader, no longer fillable

    I am converting fillable word documents (set up as tables with protection activated) into fillable pdf forms using LiveCycle but am having problems once I try to open them in Adobe Reader 9.2. I am unable to save the pdf as dynamic (the only option is static). They are no longer fillable and show "You are viewing this document in PDF/A mode".  Any advise...what am I doing wrong?

    Hi,
    I have the same problem.
    I check my settings and I don't ask a PDF/A files. It's a PDF standard.
    Have someone a solution ?
    Thanks a lot for your help

  • I filled in a fillable pdf form and when i print it, the text in the fillable section gets cut off.

    I filled in a fillable pdf form and when i print it, the text in the fillable section gets cut off. What do I need to do to get the entire text to be printed. Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks

    What has this to do with Pages? You probably did this in Preview.

  • How does one change a "rollover" value in a text field of a fillable PDF?

    I have a fillable PDF, and the values displayed when rolling the pointer over a fillable text field are showing some strange values.  I inherited this form from someone who is no longer with the company.  I need to be able to change the values but can't figure out how.  I'm new to LiveCycle so any help is greatly appreciated.

    When you click on the field, right click to properties.  If the tab isn't there then go to the top toolbar, click on Window and it should appear in the list there.  Once you click on it in the Window menu it will appear as a tab on your properties box.

    I guess you are referring to "Tool Tip" you can update those in "Accessibility" Pallet...in designer you would access this by Shift+F6.

  • Can I create a fillable pdf form and then export it for client use on my web site?

    Can I create a fillable pdf form and then export it for client use on my web site?  I need clients to be able to fill in the (registration) form on my site then submit it via email.

  • In creating a fillable PDF in XI Pro, can I insert a table which can be tabbed through?

    In creating a fillable PDF in XI Pro, can I insert a table which can be tabbed through?

    You're in luck. Create the first field and then right-click it (in Form Edit mode) and select Create Multiple Copies. You'll be able to specify how many copies of the fields to generate, and at what intervals. The nice thing is that although the properties of the new fields will be identical to the source one, they'll each have a unique name, so you'll get an instant "table" of fields.

  • Fillable pdf's returned by clients are readable only one line at a time

    We have been emailing fillable pdf questionnaires to our customers for them to complete and return via email.  When some of them have come
    back, they are only viewable one line at a time, we need to highlight the fillable field that the customer completed so we can view their answer.
    Does anyone know why this occurs and why it would be isolated to a few cases?  Thanks!

    They were probably filled-in and saved with the Preview application on the Mac. For more information and some approaches you can take to correct, see: http://kb2.adobe.com/community/publishing/885/cpsid_88564.html

  • Any ideas on how we could get any sort of shop stamp or other identifying mark onto our fillable pdf on an ipad.

    I am looking for any ideas on how we could get any sort of shop stamp or other identifying mark onto our fillable pdf on an ipad.
    The scenario is that when we do a job as opposed to our regular contract work, at a large nationwide retailer, their accounts people want the shop's stamp, as proof of the work being done.
    Currently the 'paper' service report is just stamped. For the regular contract work, whoever signs the service report just uses their finger to sign the report, on the iPad.
    On a PC the shop could just set up an electronic signature as their 'shop stamp', but the iPad is another story.
    I am having a vision of ink stamps all over the iPad screen. LoL
    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Unlike the desktop version of Adobe Reader, Reader mobile products (for iOS, Android, Windows Phone) do not support stamp annotations yet.
    If you'd like, you can submit the Feature Request form.  The Product Management team will take your request into consideration for a future release of Adobe Reader for iOS.
    Thank you for the feedback!

  • Creating a Fillable PDF with Acrobat Pro 9

    Hey there, i've got a problem when trying to create a fillable PDF Document.
    I simple want to get a calculation done.
    I got Checkboxes and i need a calculation like this:
    For example:
    If there is a "x" in the field named checkbox1, then it should go forward and check what number is in the Field named "Hours1"
    if its higher than 2, it should put a 0,25 in the field, if higher than 4, put a 0,5 in the field, if higher than 6, put a 0,75 in the field and if higher than 8, put a 1 in the field and if nothing is written in hours1, leave it blank
    Like:
    If checkbox1 > 0 then if hours1 > 2 then 0,25 else if hours1 > 4 then 0,5 else if > 6 then 0,75 else if > 8 then 1 else ""
    i used this calculation on excel but now we wanted to send a fillable pdf via email, but the recievers of the email always mix up the calculation, so i wanted to have it already in the pdf and calculating by it own.
    i found basic things like field1 + field2  but i just saw that i need javascript to get what i need.
    but well, i dont have any idea of JS.
    maybe u can give me some links where i can learn it or something else.
    iam looking forward to any help i recieve.
    thanks for reading and i hope u can help me.

    "Automatic Form Recognition" looks for blank areas next to text and assumes the format.
    You probably will need to place each individual form and write each script.
    You can find articles at Planet PDF and Acrobat Users Community and there a number of books on how to create and program forms.

  • Why can't I create Fillable PDF Forms using Adobe Acrobat X Pro and upload to Dreamweaver?

    I can create fillable PDF Forms using Adobe Acrobat X Pro. I can email them to someone using Adobe Reader (free) and they can fill them, save and email to me. But when I upload the form to Dreamweaver CS5, the form is not fillable. And yes, I saved it as a Reader Extended PDF-Enable Additional Features.

    I see no reason for this form to fail in Reader. Some questions for you.
    1. On the system with Adobe Reader, what is the system and the version of Adobe Reader?
    2. Are you viewing the PDF in a browser on the system with Reader, or in an Adobe Reader window?
    3. If it's a browser
    (a) what is the browser
    (b) if you download the file instead, and open directly in Reader, what happens?

  • Allow user to fill in a fillable pdf but disallow adding comments and annotation

    Hi there.  I have a fillable pdf created by livecycle designer.  I want to let users fill in the form but prevant them adding comments and annotatons to the form.  I cannot reset the above requirements in form property - form security if I have already set a password and allowed user to fill in the form.  Can I user javascript to that effect during the document loading?
    Thanks.

    Hi,
    If you save the form as a Dynamic XML Form in the save-as dialogue, then the user will not be able to apply comments. They can only do this in flat or static PDF forms.

  • How do I update the background art of a fillable pdf

    How do I update the background art or type of a fillable pdf without having to redo the fillable form fields in the portion of the form that remain the same?

    Create a new PDF with the updates. Open the old one and use Document>Replace pages. That will replace the background while leaving the current form fields intact.

  • How do I enable commenting on a dynamic fillable pdf?

    This question applies to both Acrobat 9 and X. It seems like it's either one or the other - if I enable commenting, it asks that I use the File > Print to print as a flat non-fillable PDF, but if I want to keep the form fillable, then I cannot enable commenting.
    In Acrobat 9, "Advanced > Extend Features" only enables form filling, not commenting. "Comments > Enable Commenting" doesn't seem to do anything other than pop up that window to tell me to print the PDF. I believe the same limitations apply to Acrobat X, in "File > Save As > Reader Extended PDF".
    Is there a way to make my form fillable, but allow the commenting toolbar (sticky notes, highlighting, etc) in Adobe Reader?

    The only way to enable BOTH sets of options is via our LiveCycle Reader Extensions Server product.

  • Question re Acrobat 9 Pro Extended and distributing fillable PDFs

    I am using Acrobat 9 Pro and created a fillable PDF (with a great deal of help from George Johnson!!). I now find out that because of licensing constrictions I can only send and receive 500 fillable PDFs (or maybe it's a total of 500 sent and received fillable PDFs, it's unclear to me). After doing some research it seems that Acrobat 9 Pro Extended comes with LiveCycle. Does that mean that I can send out and receive more than 500 fillable PDFs? I can't find any documentation and it's too late to call Adobe tech, so just wondering if anyone knew off the top of their head. Thanks much.

    > When using Save As to save a PDF, is it possible to have Commenting and Analysis enabled for that saved PDF by default?
    No.

  • Can I create a fillable PDF that allows the user to attach a file to the submitted form?

    There are suggestions in the Help documentation and on this site that indicate it is possible to attach files to a fillable PDF form that is being submitted. But I do not see any instructions for adding this functionality to a form. I am using Acrobat 9 Pro to create my form. I have a Submit button with an Action/Menu Item/Submit a form option, and the URL link for the submission is a local coldfusion file with a #FDF suffix. The export format is HTML. The form also contains a hidden EMAILTO field, with an Options/DefaultValue option identifying the recipient's email address. (I'm guessing the local cfm file uses this field.) There is also a hidden URL field in the form, and its Options/DefaultValue specifies the URL of the fillable form itself. (Perhaps the local cfm file uses this field too.)
    How can I add functionality to this form, using Adobe/PDF, to allow the user who submits the form to attach a file to the submission?

    You have to first configure a text field so it can be used for file selection. You do this on the Options tab of the field properties dialog. In order to select the corresponding check box, make sure only the "Scroll long text" option is selected.
    You then can set up a button that has the following JavaScript attached to the Mouse Up event:
    // Mouse Up script for button
    getField("upload_text_field").browseForFileToSubmit();
    Replace "upload_text_field" with the actual name of the file selection text field.
