Need to edit a form that was created by someone else.

Hello, I have to edit a form that was created by someone else. I made numerous changes to the text and repositioned a lot of the items, and it appeared fine on my computer. However, when I open it on my PC and other systems, the fonts are substituting and I'm getting strange characters where I changed the text. I tried embedding the fonts with the Preflight embed fonts, but it is still messed up. My client is anxious...not sure what else to check. Any help would be appreciated!

You don't need to re-do the fields. If you create a new version of the PDF
file just open the old one and use the Replace Pages command to insert the
pages from the new version over the old ones. This will give you a new
version of the file, with the existing form fields still in tact. Of
course, you might need to adjust their location and/or size, but at least
you won't have to start all over again...

  • Start a workflow for a list item that was created by someone else

    What settings do I need to change so that I can start a workflow for a list item created by another user?
    I have a SharePoint 2013 workflow (let's call it LSR Status Workflow) that is associated with a list (called
    LSR List). When a user creates an item in the LSR List, it automatically starts the
    LSR Status Workflow. That is what I wanted, but sometimes I make changes to the workflow (via SharePoint designer) and then I would want to terminate the existing workflows that are running and restart them.
    When I try to start a workflow for anyone other than a list item that I created, I get the following error:
    Retrying last request. Next attempt scheduled in less than one minute. Details of last request: HTTP NotFound to https://publishing.web.company.com/sites/mysite/_vti_bin/client.svc/web/lists/getbyid(guid'1f844b8f-19aa-4587-bcc2-dfb7085f36b5')/Items(31)

    60c83aae-5c25-4ee8-9c85-c64958ba701e
    Then when the workflow is finally suspended after it keeps retrying, it reports the following error:
    RequestorId: 8efc5304-f0a3-90f6-0000-000000000000. Details: An unhandled

    If I created the list item, I can stop it and restart it without any problems, but this is not the case for list items created by someone else.

  • How can I find and change a mask that was created by someone else?

    I need to adapt a design to a billboard; it was originally created by our parent company's marketing. The billboard company just informed me that I need to incorporate a bleed area and the document does not have that.
    I think it's using a mask on the items that will need to bleed, so I need to find the masking box and expand it to meet the bleed. But since I did not create this document, I have no idea how to find it and it's difficult to reach Marketing.
    Is there an easy way to find the mask, or make it visible?

    Unlock all layers
    Object >> unlock all
    Select >> Object >> Clipping Masks
    Object >> Clipping Mask >> Release
    If you find there are no clipping masks, you can also mask using the tranparency palette. UYou basiclaly have on lemtn whcih is your art, adn some art on top whcih serves as the mask, you slect both then use the make mask command form the transprency palette.
    Do a CMD Y to better analiyze how this is constructed, as without a screenshot we can only make a best guess as to what is going on.

    Hi Mike,
    CRSE is an OEM Product and for use with a custom application they have written. Unfortunately we don't their reports or how they are connecting, it would appear they were originally built off a SQL and then set to a Dataset in the app or they could be adding the data source at runtime. Lots of variations and without access to the source code to see what they are doing not much we can help you with.
    You need to contact the OEM Partner for help in resolving this and find out what you can and need to do to update your SP and work with their canned reports,
    Thank you

  • Importing data from Excel to generate "filled" PDF form that was created in Designer

    Hi there
    I have a form that was created in Designer.  The data that  I need to import is all in a Excel spreadsheet with the same fields as the form.
    Is it possible to import all the data so that it generates a printed PDF with the data on each line of excel?
    For example:
    If my excel file shows:
    First Name      Last Name     Phone Number        UserID
    John               Doe               416-777-9970           johndoe997
    Mike               Rogers           905-887-3398          mikerogers997
    In this example I would like to generate a PDF form for John and for Mike, each with their details filled out on the form based on the data in the excel sheet
    Thanks in advance!

    Can't seem to change the Document Properties > Advanced > Reading Options in a Form that was created in Adobe LiveCycle. This option has been "greyed" out - anyone know how to update this to English so I can pass Accessibility Testing?

    LiveCycle forms use a very different approach to create a PDF form than Acrobat and that approach makes many features for processing PDFs non-functional.
    You might want to ask this question in one of the LiveCycle product forums.

  • I have a acrobat reader, can I import text delimited data format to a PDF Form so that it can auto fill into forms that was created? If not, what about FDF and XML data

    I have a acrobat reader, can I import text delimited data format to a PDF Form so that it can auto fill into forms that was created? If not, what about FDF and XML data

    Yes, you can do all of that via Tools - Forms - More Form Options - Import Data, if you have Acrobat.
    If you only have the free Reader then you can still do it, but it requires a script.

  • I need to play a DVD that was created on a microsoft machine on my Mac and need help finding the right converter software.

    I have received a "Data DVD" that was made on a windows machine and need to play it on my mac but am having trouble finding the right player or converter.I would like a free application if possible. Thank You,JerryStephen:-)

    I think I understand now.  The DVD has an auto start player (exe) that steps through the video's, html, whatever. Your gonna need windows or you'll be forced to look at the individual pieces seperately.  Html's you can open, idx files are subtitles, the video format is avi I'm guessing or maybe wma.
    Try this first, get the VLC player from video_lan.  It's a great tool to have in your toolbox.  It should play the video files at least (including subtitles).  VLC can play almost any format.

  • Why can't i see the information entered into a PDF form that was created?

    I have created a fillable form and when the individuals complete the form and send it back, it shows blank until you click in each box, but you can't print it off with all of their information as it doesn't show on the print?  Did i do something wrong when i created it?

    This is typically an issue when a person uses a non-Acrobat product (Preview on the Mac or NitroPDF on Windows, for instance) to fill out the PDF form.
    Somewhere at the beginning of your form, let the users know they must use Adobe's free Reader or one of their commercial products: Acrobat Standard (for education) or Acrobat Pro to complete the form. That, or just convert it to a web form, with instructions for them to print each page as they move along.
    There could be a different reason, but this is the most common.
    I hope that helps,
    Brian

  • How to save a completed form that was created as a dynamic form, with expandable files?

    I have created a dynamic PDF form with expandable fields etc. As this is to be accessible for customers to completed, how can they save a completed copy on their own PC?
    I tried it myself and I receive an error msg stating that I can only save a Blank Copy of this Form:  Data typed into this form will not be saved. Adobe Reader can only save a blank copy of this form.
    How can I create a dynamic form (with expandable fields/flowable layout etc) that allows the applicant to not only complete the form but also, to save a completed copy?

    Thanks! That worked , however I now have an additional issue.
    While the form works in Internet Explorer (I'm using IE11), in that it's viewable, it opens and allows me to save etc) it doesn't work in Google Chrome and I'm getting the below error message:
    Any ideas on why it doesn't display in Chrome and does in IE (I'm using the same PC and I'm using Adobe Reader XI)!
    there are other PDF forms on site that are not dynamic but are fillable, and these are opening!
    Thanks

  • Issue with using a form saved in ES3 that was created in ES2

    I have a base doc form that was created using ES2 designer.  This file is stitched together with several other documents to create a application pdf.  The file contains javascript, etc.  Everything works correctly when I run the process that stitches the documents together.  When I open the file in ES3 and save it and check it in, the process no longer works.  I get a unable to stich document error.  Any ideas?

    not really, someone else mentioned that it could be done and they said they saw it before.  I've been beating myself up for a while trying to figure out how to get it to happen.   Is there an easy way to get the content of the pdf form into an email body with plain text when pressing a submit by email button?
    Such as...
    <label name>: <txtfield content>
    First name:  <txtfield content>
    ...etc..

  • How do I edit a merged clip in Audition, that was created in premiere to correct the synchronisation, and have it all updated to the premiere clip?

    Hello,
    How do I edit a merged clip in Audition, that was created in premiere to correct the synchronisation, and have it all updated to the premiere clip?
    I have tried several tutorials but these either:
    - show correction in premiere sequence (which is not practical; given the huge number of files we have)
    - or show the editing in audition of a sequence, not the clip.
    We have started merging audio and video (removing the original audio during merge) but some of the merged clips are out of sync, so we need to correct manually, BUT we want to correct the merged clip, which may or may not end up being used, so we do not want to take it to the sequence as all we are doing is prepare the synced files for editing.
    Any idea how I can correct the synchronisation in Audition?, when I right click on clip and select "Edit in Adobe Audition" I get a list of files but not a multitrack session where I can see my video and audio tracks.

    if premiere pro doesn't sync your footage properly, and you have a huge number of files, you may want to look at pluraleyes.  there is a demo, and if it works properly, it would save you time to have it done right the first time, instead of tracking down random merged clips with bad sync.
    premiere will either export a complete sequence or "edit clip in audition". the edit clip will create a copy of the original audio and open that in audition. there is no dynamic link, its just an audio file open in two programs at the same time.  since there is no dynamic link, its not possible to bring merged clips into audition.
    Adobe Premiere Pro Help | Synchronizing audio and video with Merge Clips
    Once created, the merged clip cannot be re-synchronized, or adjusted. You must make a new merged clip.
    Merged clip audio results in mono track audio only.Final Cut Pro XML and AAF interchange formats are not supported.
    this doesn't give me much hope that audition or any other adobe program outside of premiere will help you fix the problem merged clips.
