Ok, so I'm creating a blank form for users to input data fields and then print them out on a pre-made paper form. I started out using Adobe Designer 7.0.
While I was using 7.0, I made all of the Text Fields, and spent hours lining them up to print out correctly in their corresponding boxes on the pre-made paper form that we load into the printer. (Already tried scanning the form and creating a form that way, but the scanner is weird and scales everything incorrectly.)
I upgraded to Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES today so that I could make Text visible on the form, but not visible when it prints, so that I can label each Text Field, otherwise it's just a blank template with random Text Fields all over.
Well, after upgrading, I created the Texts prompts above each Text Field and I selected Visible (screen-only) for each one of them, hoping that once I printed the form out, those texts prompts won't print out on the pre-made paper form. But, to my dismay, they printed out even though I selected the option for them to NOT print out.
So I was doing some reading and decided to add a "print button" to my form. I added the print button. Made it visible (screen-only). Printed out another form, and BAM. All of the hours I spent lining up those Text Fields went to waste because all of a sudden my Text Fields are all over the paper. I immediately removed the print button, assuming that was the problem, but for some reason my text fields are still all over the paper.
I don't want to spend the hours and hours I spent lining them up again. It just took too long. Does anyone know what happened here? If so, how do I fix it?
Also, how do I make it so that the Text prompts I created do NOT print when I print out the form?
I'm sure this is all an easy fix for you experienced ones. I'm a noob... obviously...
