Merge PDFs created using LiveCycle


Level 1

I've created PDF templates using Adobe LiveCycle Designer.  These templates are used by an application to fill in data.  It seems the resulting PDF files cannot be merged. I believe this is due to the PDF security settings such as 'Document Assembly' being set to 'Not Allowed'.  I haven't set these properties explicitly.  At what point are these properties set and how can I set them to allowed?  At the end, I need users to be able to merge the PDF files using various PDF merging tools. Please help.

You cannot merge XFA forms with other regular PDF files, because, they are completely different.

XFA does not have native merging support. I believe the LiveCycle Server product has this feature, as does some third party tools, such as iText's XFA Worker.
