I use LiveCycle 8 to create saveable PDF forms having 'Submit' buttons, and would like to know how to create them without Submit buttons. The 'Distribute' feature only seems to work when forms have a Submit button. Any suggestions?
I am having a similar issue. I have figured out how to create the fillable forms and have them submitted to an email account as a .fdf file. My issue is this: is there any way to have the submit button not direct the email through the user's email client? I understand that using the "mailto:" command automatically does this but is there any way to program the submit button to not direct the form to the email client? If the user has no email client specified, it prompts you to do things that may scare or intimidate the average person.
Could you post instructions on how you got the filled form to email as a pdf? I've tried what is listed in other posts but can't seem to get it to work. Thanks.
i did several test with Xml and pdf formats in several operating system and many of them did not work correctly , the only reliable way is this :
when you design your form and publish it to Repository (File->publish to Repository)note that u should select "Acrobat7(static)PDF form" from Save as type combo box and if your addressee fil it with adobe acrobat pprofessional 8 submit by email button run correct .
If you created your for in LiveCycle Designer 7, Reader cannot email a PDF file, only the XML. If you open the form in Acrobat Pro 8 and enable usage rights (under the Advanced menu), users with Reader can then send the filled-out PDF file.
I have a 10-page form converted from a Word doc. Looks fine on the screen and works, but I can't get the tab order to hold. I click the order on each page, all looks perfect, and most of it works, but a few always get out of synch. It's driving me crazy. What's the trick?
In Adobe LiveCycle Designer 8.0:
Click on your email submit button. Click on the XML Source tab (if you can't see it, click on View-->XML. You will see this line of code:
You create a button - change the name from button to submit by email. Then you go to your object tab and change the type to submit, go to the layout tab and change it to PDF. Then you add mailto:(email address).
this will create an email message with the filled PDF as an attachment.
