Render Form Guide from PDF


Not applicable
I'm trying to render a form guide from a pdf, using the RenderFormGuide service, but I get the following error:

Failed to load TemplateStream for FormQuery= from location URI =repository://.

Does this mean that the only way to render a Form Guide is to pass the path to an xdp and not a document containing a pdf?

That's correct. The "Form to Render" parameter is always a URL to a form in the repository.

Ok - thanks for the quick reply.

The reason I'm trying to render a Form Guide from a PDF is that once the user submits the Form Guide a PDF is rendered, but this PDF isn't Reader Enabled. So my thought was that if I used a Reader Enabled PDF to render the Form Guide I would end up with a Reader Enabled pdf once the Form Guide was submitted. I've set the 'Submit from' propety in the 'Guide Properties' to PDF.

Seen as this isn't possible, is there a way to Reader Enable the PDF the Form Guide submits to?

The ultimate experience is back.
