How to open multiple instance of Adobe Live Cycle Designer ES 8.2


Level 1


  How do I open multiple instance of Adobe Live Cycle Designer ES 8.2. I have two forms and I need to compare them. Another situation is I want to correct/copy the contents by keeping the old and new one under the view simultaneously. I also want to take advantage of multiple monitors

The MDI style windows with Ctl+Tab to switch between documents is not helping me in the context explained above

   adobe Acrobat work on multi instance if I type acrobat.exe /n;

but if I type "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\Designer 8.2\FormDesigner.exe" /n;, its just opening the existing livecycle instance

please help

I don't think you can run two instances.

But you can stretch the main application window across both monitors and tile the two documents inside the main window.

oh, that was unfortunate that we can't open multiple instances of livecycle. we can

stretch but we cannot use the keyboard shortcuts on two windows similar to two SDI's
