invalid append operation when generating pdf document?


Not applicable

I am getting the following Log warning when I check the log of my livecycle designer es2 form:

Invalid append operation: fill cannot have a child element of color

The element[color] has violated its allowable number of occurences.

I don't know how to find the problem, and the form previews properly in Acrobat preview.

Can someone tell me what this means, and what I need to do to correct the error?

Have you done any changes in the XML source or do you use scripting to change the fill color of an object?

did anyone find a solution for this? I did not make any changes in the xml source. It was working yesterday, today I'm getting this error. Please help!
