Last night, while cleaning up a form, and taking out code like debugging app.alerts, LiveCycle ballooned the form file size from 13MB to 52MB!



This morning, when I opened the file and made any modifications and then saved it, LC crashed with a Visual C runtime error, which wiped out the form file, leaving a 0 byte file. I'm hosed on all the work I did since as soon as I load the .bak file, rename and save it, as soon as I modify the newly named file, it crashes again.



I have the DRWatson dump files for the crash. How do I bring this to the attention of Adobe? The bloating of the form is problematic since it leaves the form too big to email, but the crash is scary.

Can you save the form as a PDF and send it to LiveCycle8@gmail.com ... I think I know what is happening.

I'll give it a try -- not sure whether I can get 50+ MB through our firewall.

Bizarre -



I zipped the pdf file and it zipped to only 584Kb. I'll send it and the DRWatson files
