Hi

I have build a lot of PDF documents with Adobe livecycle and then resaved them with Adobe Acrobat so they are Adobe reader compability.

The problem is that Edge and Chrome doesnt support dynamic XML forms.
So how can I resave them so the might work in Edge and Chrome.

It would take for ever to remake them and they can´t be resaved as Static PDF beacuse the rules wont work then.

/Leif

chrome dynamic edge please wait xml

If you are using Dynamic XFA strictly to merge content (i.e. XML that is provided from the server), you can flatten the PDF before it gets to the end user. LiveCycle (AEM) Server and iText XFA Worker can do this.

@Leif_Kier Not much you can do in this case if the requirement is to use a browser then try IE.

@radzmarcorrectly states that XFA based, interactive PDFs cannot be displayed in modern browsers. And there is no "Save them in another way" that will resolve this issue.

Depending on your use case you may revise the existing XFA templates to be saved as flattened PDF. Scripting can be executed in both contexts - but may happen in differernt events. Flattening or print rendering require your scripts not to be placed in client only events (exit from field for example) and they have to be executed "server-side".

If you need to use these documents in future you will not get around a migration of your existing templates from interactive PDF to static PDF.

There's no way to "convert" XFA forms to make them compatible with 3rd party PDF viewer that do not support XFA, I'm afraid.

You can print them with a PDF printer to get static PDFs. This will keep the most the layout, but all scriptings then will have to be rethinked of added again with Adobe Acrobat.
