LCD 3 Reader Enablement

Avatar

Level 4

Can you save as "Reader enable" a LiveCycle form using Acrobat XI just as you could using AX?  Or must you buy the LC Reader Extensions server to allow the Reader user to save filled-in data?

We currently have AX and LCD 2, and create forms in LCD2 before opening in AX to reader enable.  I'm concerned that since adobe is decoupling Acrobat and LiveCycle, that you can't use Acrobat in this capacity.

Yes, you can use Acrobat 11 to enable XFA forms. In Acrobat 11 the menu item is: File > Save as Other > Reader Extended PDF > Enable More Tools

Also, you may have heard that Reader 11 is able to save a filled-in form, comment, etc. even though the document is not Reader-enabled. This applies to non-XFA PDFs, so you still need to enable forms created with LiveCycle Designer if you need Reader users to save them.
