Form Display in Workspace To Do

Avatar

13-06-2008

We have LiveCycle ES. As part of our workflow process, different persons review a document and make a decision on what happens next.



We are hearing from users that it is difficult for them to read all the information on the form in the screen window it appears in. While they can zoom in to particular portions of the form, they really would like to be able to maximize the form to fill the whole screen. However, there are frames on the top and left of the workspace than cannot be minimized.



Does anyone know of a way in which we can help the users see more of the form? Their workaround is to print the form on paper, and this reduces the benefit of our electronic workflow.

It won't help you now, but the next version of the product (coming soon) will allow you to see the form full screen.

Thanks - it's very helpful to know that the feature has been identified and planned for the next version. Is the version you refer to "LiveCycle ES Update 1"?

Yes. There is a button now (on the top right) that allows you to see the form in full screen.

I think you mis read my question Jasmin.



I know we can manually maximize it but when I click on the process in Workspace I would like my form guide to open in a maximizd state for the user.

You mean automatically? Then you would have to customize workspace to be able to do that.

Is there a way to do this in Workspace ES2 yet?

It would be really handy to be able to launch a guide in a seperate window with just the guide maximized.

In ES2 you can configure the UserService steps to automatically open the form in Full Screen mode or not.  I think it the User Interface section of the properties when viewing the process in Workbench.

But there is nothing in ES2 about opening it in a separate window.
