I started a new form convertet from a word document. I have then put in lots of text boxes with tool tip text etc (lots of work). I now see that i have to make changes to the original word document but i dont want to start all over. Is there a way for the Livecycle designer to replace the old with the new document and still keep all the text boxes etc that i have added allready?
Yes ...with the submit button highlighted, on the Object palette there is a Submit tab. On that tab there is a Submit As drop down, in that drop down choose PDF ..... now the entire PDF will be submitted.
I assume you grabbed the Submit by Email button. This is a specially designed button that simplifies the UI for the button but it does the same thing. I never use that but you can use the mailto adjustment technique I mentioned earlier if you want to continue using it.
I prefer to use a button off of the Standard palette, then set it up as a Submit button (then that tab will appear).
That was the problem yes. When i importet i asked if i wanted a submit by email button, and i answered yes to that. problem is as you mentioned that when highlighted there are no Submit tab (silly tbh).
Did as you said, used a standard button and it was all good. Think i will always use standard button from now on, since it more flexible.
Thank you so much for helping me out, I really appriciate it :)
