Adapting Lifecycle forms?

Level 1
Level 1

We received some forms we need tot adapt. Unfortunately they were made with Adobe Lifecycle. We cannot adapt them in Adobe. Does anyone know how to adapt them? Is it possible to buy a temporary Adobe license?

I don't think so, but you should ask here: LiveCycle Designer .

You will probably need to either purchase a full license for LiveCycle Designer, or to convert the forms to Acrobat forms, so you could edit them in Acrobat.

You either need to buy LiveCycle Designer (note the full name: never say LiveCycle only, that is a bigger package costing tens of thousands of dollars), or remake the forms from scratch. I recommend remake, LiveCycle Designer forms are getting less and less useful.

If the forms are not dynamic (i.e. they open in a regular viewer), you can "convert" them by using a tool to remove the XFA dictionary from the AcroForm Dictionary in the PDF. Acrobat will then recognize it as a regular PDF and let you edit it.
