I know I can export the InDesign document to a PDF; however, it doesn't import the formatting very well into LiveCycle Designer.

I have a very complicated form that I want to begin updating with LiveCycle because of the form features and 508 accessibility.  However, when I import the PDF files the tables do not covert well.  Paragraph text imports line by line.

What is the best way to move my forms from InDesign to LiveCycle Designer?  Are there certain settings to use when exporting to PDF to help retain the formatting for the issues I described?

TIA.

You could try to export your Indesign file to XML and open the XML in Livecycle. I dont know if that would work, but Livecycle forms are XML based for layout.

I have the same question...did you figure this out by any chance? Does anybody know how to import tables that were made in indesign into livecycle instead of recreating the table from scratch in Livecycle?
