I designed a PDF Form with LiveCycle Designer ES 8.2. The Form has a WSDL dataconnection which can be submitted in the designer pdf preview tab as well as in acrobat. Now I like to provide a form guide for this PDF Form. I defined the menu structure and added some fields. In the guides configuration menu (submit from form guide) I declared the PDF’s submit button as the Trigger for the guides Send button. I start the preview, form guide is rendered, everything fine so far … problem: send button is not working. I am not using Forms – tested only in form guides preview mode. I don’t have the Reader installed, just the Acrobat 9 extended full version. Any ideas why the connection is not working in the form guide? Maybe you cannot submit something in preview mode?
A quick solution for this is maybe to toggle the view to PDF at the and of the form guide and submit the data directly from the pdf. How do I get the buttons to the topbar in form guide, to switch to PDF Layout? I have seen them there but they don’t appear anymore. Do I have to apply a special layout in design mode?
