Hi,

In the GN (Government of Nunavut, Canada), they do not use the forms in the traditional way (i.e. using a Submit button and piping the XML data into an email attachment). They all have Acrobat Standard and save the entire form and then emailing it to the authority who has to send it to Operations, Project Office, etc.

When they attach a file, the attachment panel shows the attachment on the left. However, when they open the saved form, the attachment panel only opens when they click on the paper clip.

Question:

Is there a way to save the form so that the attachment panel always opens if there is a file attached? (I mean like on a regular PDF file where you can put the properties to open Page and Bookmark or Page and Page view.)

OR

Is there a way to show the attachment in the form of a thumbnail or icon beside the 'Attach File' button as soon as it is attached?

Thank you!

Lisa

Hi Genius

Again, thank you very much!

It did not occur to me that I had the wrong language. I clicked Correct Answer.

At the risk of being too demanding, I have another question and will ask here so that I can attach the form. I would like to propagate the table rows to a new page and possibly clone the header row. Would something like (var i = 0; i < xfa.host.numPages; i++)? I don't know the syntax and what to do to pick up the table header.

Thanks!
