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?
ie.. I have 36 pages in PDF view and only 31 in Design view.
>The problem with Designer is that I can find no way to import new pages into my form.
I'm sure you can't, but maybe you could make a new LiveCycle form, and
copy/paste, not sure.
What you are describing is easily done with Acrobat forms - be sure
you really needed to use LiveCycle 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. ???
