I've developed forms in LiveCycle ES2, and they work as I expect on a desktop computer.  The user can fill in the form, sign the form, and click the button to email the form back.  There is no server-side processing or anything going on, it is just a discrete singular form.

When I open the same form in iOS or Android Adobe Reader, I cannot fill out the form or click the button. Are there any standards for how I need to save this in LiveCycle ES2?  I've tried dynamic, I've tried static, I've tried compatibility with 7.1 and before, I've tried compatibility with 9.1.  Is there a term for what I'm trying to do?  I don't want to connect with a LiveCycle server.  I don't want to interact with any sort of server data. I just want my forms to show up in iOS or Android Adobe Reader and see the fillable fields turn blue and be able to click in them.  Thanks!

Hi

As Steve says, you can't use XFA PDF forms directly on mobile devices. However, there are two options you can look at:

1. Adobe has recently announced a new version of LiveCycle that renders XFA forms in HTML for tablet devices. http://www.adobe.com/products/livecycle/mobile.html
