help - all data fields in all my forms are locked in design view


Level 2

Working in LiveCycle Designer ES2 v.9 -  I have 10 forms that I've designed for my client. I opened them this morning to edit the design and all the data fields are locked. In the Hierarchy tab, the names are greyed out. I haven't done anything to the forms since saving last night. Some of the forms are really complex and and no way do I want to recreate them. I tried saving with a different name but that doesn't work either. NB. The forms work OK when opened in Acrobat (for filling). It's just the design edits in LiveCycle that I can't do, now.

Try posting it here and maybe someone could have a look.

Thanks. I figured out that I had inadvertently clicked on (enabled) Lock Fields. It took awhile as when that is turned on, the menu item doesn't show that you've turned it on e.g. no check mark or default to "Unlock Fields". If it changed to "Unlock Fields",  I wouldn't have spent so much time trying to figure out what happened:o).

Something the LiveCycle team may want to change in that menu.
