Hi,

When you save your form, you can choose static pdf, or dynamic pdf, and if you save as xml form, you seem to get this error. Try saving as not xml form. However, if you are using scripts, you must save as dynamic form.

When you click on save as, you can select the appropriate format, like Static PDF form, or dynamic xml form.

If I save form as static, it is imposible to combinate with some document. And if I save form as dynamic, it is imposible too

The only way you can combine it is through Assembler and the form must be the 1st document in the set. You cannot combine multiple forms. Conversely you can flatten the form (on the server - takes the fields out of the form - removes the interactivity from it). Then you can combine it in whatever way you want.

Then you have access to the Assembler operation (it is under the Foundation category). It uses a DDX file to tell it what to do. Combining docs are very straight forward and are well documented.

Ok, but I don´t want to do it in proces. I want do it myself. I open pdf doc. and insert to new page some image. There is no proces. I want to do it in acrobat, not in workbench.



Is it realy necessary do it in workbench?

Acrobat will not allow it .... because it is a form!
