Hello All,

I have a pdf which generated from a word document .It has texts  but not like XFA form controls.

I have to convert this form into the XFA form using Livecycle studio.

I opened  pdf in livecycle studio,it  restructured the document into the studio structure.

This pdf has forms like page1 and page2 and has subforms as it's children.

When I change the content type as "Flowed" of page1,2 ,it disturbs the alignment and shifts everything to the left.

Is there any way to make the form content type as flowed and does not disturb the alignment.

Thanks,

Vinod

I don't think so. You'll have to structure the form with flowed and postioned subforms, so the layout flows but still has the alignment of the fields the way you need it.

For Example:

form
   masterpages

    masterpage1

    masterpage2

    …

  page1 (flowed top to bottom)

      subform1 (positioned)

        textfield1

        textfield2

        …

      subform2 (flowed top to bottom)

        subform3 (flowed left to right)

            textfield3

            numericfield1

            …

        subform4 (positioned)

            textfield4

            numericfield2

            …

  page2 (flowed top to bottom)

      …
