Bullet lists not apearing properly in AEM LiveCycle Designer 6.1

17-06-2016

I have a form that was developed using Designer ES4.  The form has a text field that contains a bullet-ed list. When I open the form in AEM Designer 6.1, the list is no longer bullet-ed and the text in the list shows as a single line.

Is this an issue with AEM Designer or does it handle lists differently.

Thanks.

Uhmm, looks like AEM Designer doesn't handle the xHTML correctly since it uses a new editor to add default values of text fields.

Report a bug to Adobe, if you can find a place where you can do this for AEM Designer. I have a couple of bugs to report, but don't know where.

The XML code from the ES4 for has the following line:

<body xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:xfa="http://www.xfa.org/schema/xfa-data/1.0/"><p style="font-family:Arial;text-decoration:none;letter-spacing:0in">If one or more of the following grants or bond held in the relinquishing RESP cannot be transferred, the grant(s) and/or bond that makes the transfer ineligible must be repaid in full prior to the transfer, regardless if it is a full or partial transfer:</p><ul style="margin-top:2pt;font-family:Arial;font-weight:bold;text-decoration:none;letter-spacing:0in;list-style-type:disc"><li style="margin-top:0pt;font-weight:normal">Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG) *<span style="xfa-spacerun:yes">  </span></li><li style="margin-top:0pt;font-weight:normal">Canada Learning Bond (CLB)**</li><li style="margin-top:0pt;font-weight:normal">Saskatchewan Advantage Grant for Education Savings (SAGES)</li><li style="margin-top:0pt;font-weight:normal">British Columbia Training and Education Savings Grant (BCTESG)</li></ul><p style="font-family:Arial;font-weight:bold;text-decoration:none;letter-spacing:0in">*Additional CESG:<span style="xfa-spacerun:yes"> </span><span style="font-weight:normal">See the A to B Transfer policy above regarding the transfer of the Additional CESG to a non-offering promoter.</span></p><p style="font-family:Arial;text-decoration:none;letter-spacing:0in">** The<span style="xfa-spacerun:yes"> </span><span style="font-weight:bold">CLB</span> can remain in the relinquishing RESP if the subscriber does not wish to transfer it.</p><p style="font-family:Arial;font-weight:bold;text-decoration:none;letter-spacing:0in">Note<span style="font-weight:normal">: Repayment of the grant(s) will result in the loss of the beneficiary's grant room, which will not be restored, except for the CLB.</span></p></body>

The XML coding for the same line when I bring it into 6.1, I get the following:

body xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:xfa="http://www.xfa.org/schema/xfa-data/1.0/"><p style="font-family:Arial">If one or more of the following grants or bond held in the relinquishing RESP cannot be transferred, the grant(s) and/or bond that makes the transfer ineligible must be repaid in full prior to the transfer, regardless if it is a full or partial transfer:<span style="font-family:'Myriad Pro'">Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG) *<span style="xfa-spacerun:yes">  </span>Canada Learning Bond (CLB)**Saskatchewan Advantage Grant for Education Savings (SAGES)British Columbia Training and Education Savings Grant (BCTESG)</span></p><p style="font-family:Arial;font-weight:bold">*Additional CESG:<span style="xfa-spacerun:yes"> </span><span style="font-weight:normal">See the A to B Transfer policy above regarding the transfer of the Additional CESG to a non-offering promoter.</span></p><p style="font-family:Arial">** The<span style="xfa-spacerun:yes"> </span><span style="font-weight:bold">CLB</span> can remain in the relinquishing RESP if the subscriber does not wish to transfer it.</p><p style="font-family:Arial;font-weight:bold">Note<span style="font-weight:normal">: Repayment of the grant(s) will result in the loss of the beneficiary's grant room, which will not be restored, except for the CLB.</span></p></body>

The HTML List marking gets removed but the span stays, which would explain why the bullets are gone.

I corrected the for form and now the line looks like this:

body xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:xfa="http://www.xfa.org/schema/xfa-data/1.0/"><p style="font-family:Arial;text-decoration:none;letter-spacing:0in">If one or more of the following grants or bond held in the relinquishing RESP cannot be transferred, the grant(s) and/or bond that makes the transfer ineligible must be repaid in full prior to the transfer, regardless if it is a full or partial transfer:</p><ul style="font-family:Arial;font-weight:bold;text-decoration:none;letter-spacing:0in;list-style-type:disc"><li style="font-family:'Myriad Pro';font-weight:normal">Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG) *</li><li style="font-family:'Myriad Pro';font-weight:normal">Canada Learning Bond (CLB)**</li><li style="font-family:'Myriad Pro';font-weight:normal">Saskatchewan Advantage Grant for Education Savings (SAGES)</li><li style="font-family:'Myriad Pro';font-weight:normal">British Columbia Training and Education Savings Grant (BCTESG)</li></ul><p style="font-family:Arial;font-weight:bold;text-decoration:none;letter-spacing:0in">*Additional CESG:<span style="xfa-spacerun:yes"> </span><span style="font-weight:normal">See the A to B Transfer policy above regarding the transfer of the Additional CESG to a non-offering promoter.</span></p><p style="font-family:Arial;text-decoration:none;letter-spacing:0in">** The<span style="xfa-spacerun:yes"> </span><span style="font-weight:bold">CLB</span> can remain in the relinquishing RESP if the subscriber does not wish to transfer it.</p><p style="font-family:Arial;font-weight:bold;text-decoration:none;letter-spacing:0in">Note<span style="font-weight:normal">: Repayment of the grant(s) will result in the loss of the beneficiary's grant room, which will not be restored, except for the CLB.</span></p></body>

For some reason Designer 6.1 seems to have a hard time bringing in HTML list markup the way it was and tries to correct it by removing it.

I don't see a difference in how text fields behave in ES4 or AEM 6.1.

Static texts showing bulleted lists in design mode but text fields don't.

But if you set those text fields to allow multiple lines and RichText you can add bulleted liste in Acrobat/Reader through the Advances Text Editor (Ctrl+E).
