Hi,



Having import issues, not sure if this is just something you just have to put up with.



I converted a word doc into PDF as I dont have XP or Word 2003. The PDF does not read the word checkboxes as a checkbox, so therefore LiveCycle doesnt. As there are a LOT of checkboxes, is there anyway to avoid having to create each individual new checkbox via LiveCycle? Also why did headers not import over? The headers are blank in LC....

I did a search for some info but found nothing.



All help appreciated,

Stephanie.

My guess is that they are not checboxes in word but merely a box or 4 lines that make a box. If you import it into Acrobat 1st (Forms/Start Form Wizard). Then when that is done import the PDF into Designer you may get a better result. Acrobat will guess as to where the fields shodul be (sometimes it is right sometimes it is not). You will have to cleanse the form afterward no matter what.
