challenges lifting Designer 7.1 pdf-forms to reader 9


Level 4

We experince that we cannot lift our 350 pdf forms created in designer 7.1 and today running in reader 7.0.7 to reader 9 without problems. There are quite alot of issues:

* tab-order is reset

* readOnly fields recieves focus when tabbing in form

* visible/invisible not working all the time

* other small things

Anyone with succesful moves from reader 7 (designer 7.1) to reader 9 (LC ES 8.2) and wanna share best practices and tips? That would really help us a lot. Thanks in advance for any feedback from you

Are you setting your target version in Designer 9 to the right version as well are you setting your form as dynamic? Look at the Form Properties.
