Hi, I have ES4 (I am just teaching myself all aspects at the moment so bear with me please!)
I finally finished a major form, and uploaded to our website to test. As this will be viewed by many different people, I cannot decide how they will open it (e.g. which browser they will open it in etc.) I opened it in Internet Explorer and all seems fine. And then I attempted in Google Chrome, which resulted in the Please Wait... screen.
I thought maybe I could bypass this by forcing it to download by changing the HTML in the website back end using:
<ahref="/files/adlafjlxjewfasd89asd8f.pdf"download="expenses.pdf">Download Your Expense Report</a>
Great! It downloads, but still tries to open in Chrome so still doesn't work.
I have read many posts saying that in ES4 I can "make my form in HTML" But I don't quite understand how to do this or even where to start. Is it possible for someone to give me some basic instructions on how to get started? I am a quick learner and can usually figure things out on my own, but I don't even know how/where to go to start it. And would I need to make my form all over again?
Ideally would there be another way to bypass it? e.g. Forcing the download like I had done, and then also forcing it to open in the "system viewer" instead of through the browser? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated please!
Thank you, but I had my work purchase this program for me so that I could have Dynamic forms. Very much needed for what I am trying to do. Are you basically saying I can't make a HTML form with the program I have? So there would be no way around my forms opening in Chrome/Safari or similar?
If you don't need the dynamic features of LiveCycle, you can save the form as static. This will render on most PDF viewers. Alternatively, you could add a page zero with instructions on how to use the form:
