How to automatically add file name to email subject line


Level 1

I just upgraded from Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 to Adobe Acrobat XI Pro.

During the install, I uninstalled (of course) Adobe 9 and with it also went Live Cycle Designer.

I designed a pdf in Live Cycle Designer that I use to email from the pdf as an attachment.  Previously, when I emailed the pdf designed in livecycle via outlook, the subject line of the email automatically filled with the file name. With Adobe Acrobat Pro XI, this no longer happens.

Is there a setting that allows me to automatically fill the subject line of the pdf with the file name (or some way for me to set the subject line automaticallly) from the pdf?  Most of my emailed pdf forms go to the same person, but because of volume it is too tedious to type the subject each time.

Thank you for your consideration!

P.S. I had originally posted this at, however it was suggested that I move this to Live Cycle.
