LiveCycle Designer discontinued for standalone purchase?


Level 1

Went to buy another license and the store (here in the US at least)

just takes you to an Adobe page of yada yada about ADEP - and even gets the version wrong (ES3, not ES4)

What gives? We should be able to buy it for $299 according to the previous page.

Adobe are really dropping the ball when it comes to Designer - if they think everyone is going to go over to FormsCentral, they're wronig.  Both FC and Acrobat are underpowered when it comes to being a dedicated forms design tool, and they seem oblivous to the fact that LC Designer is (IMHO and judging by the traffic on this forum) way far the best option and most popular.

Thanks Steve - though I see you are in Canada, not US.

So, it must be the US shop site which is faulty - because I checked with a colleague in Europe and she had no problem with the online shop over there.

I get the feeling Adobe don't invest as much as they should do in a lot of their systems - these faults seem to happen all the time.

I am beside myself that adobe has taken the liberty of removing LCD from acrobat and has told me that the public requested it.

I bet the public also asked to be charged $300 for new software so that we can work on the 100's of forms we previously created with a PAID version of Pro 9 that came with LCD 8.
