I have a working PDF form that was created in Adobe and Designer (Livecycle). I needed to add (import) 5 pages from another PDF into the form. I can import while in Adobe Acrobat Pro and the new pages display fine, including all the form fields, buttons, etc...
However when I switch back to Designer to add database fields to the newly added pages, the pages are missing/do not disply.
I open the form back up in Adobe acrobat Pro and the new pages are there.
Any thoughts? Why cant I see the new pages in Designer?
Yes, I have to use livecycle for manipulating the database connection. I created the forms in acrobat, (which are made up of several state regulatory forms), for the purpose of having a single, complex PDF that we can merge data into. This saves us time (several hours)from having to complete each form manually and also from having to use Word's mail merge.
I then added a record selector/menu to the first page. When a record is selected the data populates all 31 pages in the form. The state's agency has added another 5 page form that I need to now incorporate into this automation. I can import the pages into acrobat pro.
However, as I stated, when I go to designer to add the database fields to the new pages, the new pages are missing. When I switch back to Arobat, the new pages are there. ???
>In Acrobat use File/Create PDF/From mutiple files. Once created then >(in Acrobat) Advanced/Forms/Open Form in Adobe Designer.
This is what I did.
I then added 5 additional pages at the end of the form (it was 31 pages long and is now 36 pages long) The pages are visible when in Acrobat but when I switch to Designer to actually WORK on the pages they are MISSING.
While in Designer the options to add/insert pages are greyed out.
I have a 31 page form that I created in Acrobat. I then switch to deisgner to connect the form to the database, (for ease of population). The form has been in production for several months. There is now a need to add 5 additional pages to the form. In Designer the option to add or insert pages is greyed out. So I then open the form up in Acrobat where I can insert/add pages. This works fine and all the functionality of the form remains intact, (I can still connect the form to the database) Now I need to add database fields to the new pages I added to the form. So I switch back to designer to pull the database fields to the new pages, (which are visible in Acrobat, mind you.) When Designer opens the pages are missing. Not Visible. What? Switching back to Acrobat - *poof*, they are there again. Switch back to Designer, *poof* - they are missing again. On top of all this, the options to add or insert pages in Designer is still greyed out.
