Form PDF email output issue

I developed a from in smart form to send it as PDF attachment in email. It worked fine but I have a issue.
When I send PDF it send in the way the the layout was designed but if some user sends it the fields are printed zigzag. Alignment is getting messed up. I have page layout defined in the smartfom.  I am not printing the form so no printer is involved in development.
How to handle the issue?

Any Suggestions please.

  • Forms calling Reports output issue RTF/PDF - strange issue

    Dear All,
    I'm looking for a bit of help with a strange situation calling reports from Forms.
    This problem I'm getting in both 11.1.1 and 11.1.2 of Forms/Reports. Client is WinXP/7 (issue appears on both), Weblogic server is Linux (SLES11 and Red Hat - issue on both)
    So the issue is
    1. calling a report with output as RTF (this works fine and we use OLE2 to open the report in Word)
    2. Wihile in that form call the same report though change the output to be created as PDF in the cache and the report then opens in IE (this too works fine)
    3. Now if we try and do number 1 again (still in the same form) and run the same report again and choose to generate as RTF and open in word, it erroneously generates the report in PDF format but with an .RTF extension on the file.
    Of course most of the time people would not want to do this, but the client has identified this issue and classified it as a bug, so we need to fix it (and it doesn't happen in the Forms6i version it is migrated from).
    I have tried to ensure that the parameter list is correctly deleted and re-created, which appears to be the case. I also tried to generate a new unique parameter list for every run, which made no difference to the problem.
    If I choose to run a completely different report, the problem has reset itself. So the problem exists only when I've chosen the PDF output and then run the same report thereafter as RTF output to a file.
    Code to prepare for the RTF option is:
    Add_Parameter(pl_id,'desname',TEXT_PARAMETER,l_temp_env||'/'|| p_report || '.rtf');
    l_report_desname := l_temp_env||'/'|| p_report || '.rtf';
    l_report := p_report;
    Code used to prepare for PDF option is:
    l_report := p_report;
    Any ideas gratefully received.

    So I delete the paramlist correctly, then the code is:
    IF (p_display_method = 'W')
    --WORD Format
         --delete file on client
         Delete_File('c:\temp'||'\'|| p_report || '.rtf');
         --delete file on app server
         host('rm '||l_temp_env||'/'|| p_report || '.rtf');
         Add_Parameter(pl_id,'DESNAME',TEXT_PARAMETER,l_temp_env||'/'|| p_report || '.rtf');
         l_report_desname := l_temp_env||'/'|| p_report || '.rtf';
         l_report := p_report;
    ELSIF (p_display_method = 'E')
    --EXCEL format
         --delete file on client
         Delete_File('c:\temp'||'\'|| p_report || '.csv');
         Delete_File('c:\temp'||'\'|| p_report || '.xls');
         --delete file on app server
         host('rm '||l_temp_env||'/'|| p_report || '.csv');
         Delete_File(l_temp_env||'\'|| p_report || '.cvs');
         Delete_File(l_temp_env||'\'|| p_report || '.xls');
         Add_Parameter(pl_id,'desname',TEXT_PARAMETER,l_temp_env||'/'|| p_report || '.csv');
         l_report := p_report || '_d';
    ELSIF (p_display_method = 'P')
    -- PDF Format
         Add_Parameter(pl_id,'desname',TEXT_PARAMETER,l_temp_env||'/'|| p_report || '.pdf');
         l_report := p_report;
    END IF;
    So all of the above works fine when generating a report the first time you enter a form, but if you run a PDF output report then immediately in the same form generate the report again to a non-PDF format, it comes out in incorrectly in PDF format.

    If anyone is reading this still looking for what caused the issue and how to fix it here is what I discovered.
    The antivirus program our company uses, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus, was causing some of the PDF files not to open. After troubleshooting the different modules and settings the culprit was..
    Scan SSL in Privacy Control Settings. Turning it OFF solved the problem and all the PDF files that previously would not open now open just fine. This issue has been sent to Bitdefender for them to review. If you use a different antivirus program and are having this issue try locating the Scan SSL setting and see if turning it off solves the problem.

  • Send PDF form to email address user enters in textfield on form.

    I would like to be able to allow the person using the form to choose what email address the PDF form is emailed to. I read this post which sounds like what I want but I keep getting a Submit Cancelled error. The email does get generated and the form is attached as a PDF so that part works okay.
    This is the code I am using as I only need the To: address populated.
    form1.Page1.Button1::preSubmit:form - (JavaScript, client)
    var strToAddress
    //Capture the values from the form fields.
    strToAddress = txtToAddress.rawValue;{cURL:"mailto:"+ strToAddress,cSubmitAs:"PDF",cCharset:"utf-8"});

    There is an example here:
    // Declare the variable
    var vEmail;
    // Check that the email field is not null
    if (txtToAddress.rawValue !== null) {
         vEmail = txtToAddress.rawValue;
    // Send email{cURL:"mailto: " + vEmail + "?subject=&body=",cSubmitAs:"PDF",cCharset:"utf-8"});

  • Read PDF form from email attachment

    Hope someone is able to help on this one...
    We are using a pdf form at work to gather some feedback and the user will be submitting the form via email...
    Using outlook 2003 I had a crack at writing a vba module to read the pdf form from the email attachment to update into an excel spreadsheet
    Is it possible to read pdf forms from the email attachment with outlook vba? Or does the attachment need to be saved to a directory first?
    I have in the past done a vba module to save the pdf form attachments to a directory and then using acrobat and it's in-built form data collection tool and exported as a csv, but this feedback form will be an ongoing thing that will be updated daily - and to minimise handling would like to run the outllook macro that reads straight from the email attachment instead of doing another 3 or so steps...

  • Button to send filled out form as completed pdf form via email

    I have created a form that when filled out, should send the form by email to the recipient as a completed pdf form. It works with Adobe Acrobat but not Reader.
    Any Ideas?
    form can be found at:

    Check out:
    Use your real name, and e-mail address in the PDF form fields, and recieve a customized email copy and response.
    The script will parse and merge the XDP submission, so there's no need to Reader Enable your forms. works in web servers.
    Note: Do not submit sensitive information, this is just a demo. I may get a BCC of the form.

  • Clients get corrupted PDF documents (containing forms) in emails?

    This isn't an Adobe issue per se, but many Adobe users have probably come across this IT issue:
    When you drag certain kinds of PDF files to Outlook as attachments to send to a client or others, they often cannot open the PDF files because they're corrupted." This happened only with a PDF FORM that we produced, but non-form PDF files seemed to work fine.
    After some testing, I found that it occurs when people are downloading the attachments from an online mail interface (e.g., gmail, yahoo mail, etc.)-- if they are using Outlook, the form-PDF's come across fine. If I enclose the form-PDF files in a zip file, then they come out fine too (in all cases).
    So, is there a "magic" way to set-up Outlook so that the raw form-PDF attachments don't become corrupted when the client's try to download them?

    Well, I can't check Outlook on this machine as I can't find it. I might check another machine later. Anyway, most mail packages have an option to view the raw message, not the formated one that you normally see. The raw message form has the routing header of where the e-mail traveled on the way to you and information on the type of content, that is often in a multi-part form. Part may be ASCII (generally 7-bit data) and other Base64 (binary) and such. This information is used by your mail client to display it the way you see it. In old style e-mail you only saw the raw form and had to wade though all of the extra stuff. However, that stuff can be helpful when problems crop up and that is what I was suggesting.
    Outlook may be one of those clients that assumes you would get no value from the raw form and hides the selection, I really do not know. The raw form is the data is it is sent to you, not as you see it. My package has the option on a tab and it is easy to view.
    In any case, your problem is likely a client encoding issue. PDFs have long had problems with mail clients as a result. Zip files are an alternative, but as suggested many companies and agencies no longer allow zip files and will strip them off of any e-mail.

  • Heavy performance issues using Adobe Interactive Form PDFs generated by SAP BPM

    Dear experts,
    we use Adobe Interactive Form PDFs (generated with LiveCycle Designer) as Human Tasks within SAP BPM processes. The PDFs are generated and transmitted correctly, but when they are opened at the receivers PC, Windows freezes for 2-3 minutes, then the PDF opens and can be filled out and sent back. The next PDFs can be opened much faster, but when the PC is restarted, we get the same problem again. We use Adobe Reader XI (11.0.2) on our clients; is their any know performance issue?
    Please note, that we have this problem with EVERY Adobe Interactive Form PDF... I created a simple PDF containing just a field and the client PC still freezes. So it can't be in the form or the scripting. Normal static PDFs can be opend without any problems.
    Best regards,

    They haven't really announced it, because there is no product to announce. Rather the opposite.
    There are no conversion tools, so far as I know.
    XFA forms are a non-starter if you want portability.
    AcroForms are a nightmare in themselves, because the functionality is limited in Adobe Reader and varies between absent and weird in other products. No idea about Blackberry support.
    You will not find a simple recommendation. Rather, you need to use Acroforms and carefully test everything (EVERYTHING: no assumptions) on every platform you intend to support.
    Yes, rather unsatisfactory, but until Adobe realise that the future is platform equivalence or irrelevance, this is where we are.

  • Submitting PDF form through email

    I created an order form PDF a year ago (with Acrobat Pro 8) for a client's website with a button to submit the form through email. The customers can fill out the order form in Acrobat Reader 8 and email the PDF to my client's email. Now that doesn't seem to work anymore - an illegal operation message comes up. I've changed the action for the button to submit the order form as a FDF file but the form data is not found once the email is sent. I've found the FDF Toolkit but have no idea what to do with it. Is there a simpler way for customers to fill out the form and email it to my client?

    Sure. Just enable the form so Reader users can save it when it's finished then instruct them to do so and attach it to an email.

  • Submit PDF form via email = Operation is not permited!

    Hi there,
    I just downloaded a trial version of Acrobat 9.0 to see if we can make a bunch of our forms more user friendly and possibly interacive.
    I have created a form, and now I'd like to enable the user to submit the entire form by email to one of our email accounts by clicking a Submit button.
    I followed the required steps religously and defined the "Submit a form" action, triggered by "Mouse Up" and included  the required mailto:[email protected] link.
    However, when I open the form in either Acrobat Pro 9 or Reader 9, the text on the button is not there and when I click on the button it either pulls up an email that looks the way it's supposed to, but the "email was not sent". If I try the same thing on my MAC, clicking on the button generates "Operation not permitted" message.
    Where did I go wrong?
    Any pointers would be greatly appreciated as this feature or ability is pretty much crucial to our decision to purchase the application.
    Many thanks.

    There are a few things to be careful about, particularly if others are to read your form on a variety of systems.
    1. Don't use spaces in the file name. A lot of browsers will choke on spaces, though most are starting to accept this non-standard habit resulting from Windows habits.
    2. Don't put a space between mailto: and your email. It will send a space in from of your e-mail address that may cause a problem with an e-mail client.
    3. Your submit button was not labelled, with an icon as you had it set or simply text "Submit."
    I modified the form to come to me and filled it out. The data was sent to me and I asked to open it, it could not find the file but allowed me to select the form file and it opened up just fine. You can also open the form in Acrobat and use the import data option. It sounds like this last little bit was the hangup for you. In the past I have been able to select the FDF file and it would open right up. I am not sure what is necessary for it to find the form - standard placement or what I am not sure.

  • Issues regarding form pdf?

    Hello There,
    I recently downloaded Adobe Pro to test and create a form pdf. I performed the following:
    1. Included a few fields, including mandatory ones which showed * sign while designing. When I saved as pdf, on my local drive. When I opened the pdf file the mandatory * sign just didn't showed up.
    How can I force the user to enter all the mandatory fields before he saves the file?
    The other problem I faced is when I try to distribute and would like to save the pdf in my local drive, it wouldn't allow me to do so, but asks to save in share point or network drive
    Could you please advise?
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thanks & regards

    The required size and resolution depend entirely on the size the image will be printed, and the printing method. You can check the "Effective Resolution" for the image in either the Links Panel or the Info Panel. That's the one that counts.
    For typical offset litho printing, you want something in the range of 300 ppi effective resolution (but as low as 244 will probably be ok with screen frequency of 150 lpi or less). For digital printing my rule of thumb is 180 -200 ppi effective resolution.
    These numbers presume the work will be viewed at arm's length or less. For large prints made to be viewed from a longer distance you need less resolution. Are you printing these images at 100% scale?
