Am I able to disable bullet points?

Avatar

24-11-2008

I've made a series of forms in Livecycle Designer 8.0 which our department sends off to multiple recipients. When we extract the returned data into a csv, we've found that bullet points are really playing up with the extraction - not all bulleted data comes through into the csv, and the carriage returns don't always come through properly.



Is there any way to disallow bulleting at form level, maybe through the use of scripting? We'll tell our recipient not to do it, but it would definitely help if we could disable them altogether!

Bullet Points? Can you explain?

Sorry, I probably could have clarified better! These are bullet points that are copied and pasted from Word into text fields in the form.

We've partially solved the problem by disallowing multiple lines, but am still confused as to what was making the copied bullet lists cut off halfway when exported to csv....
