open forms designed by Livecycle Designer in ipads


Level 3

hi everyone,

I've got a few dynamic forms that were designed using the Livecycle Designer ES and its requirement is at least a version of adobe acrobat 8.1. I have some users having trouble opening these forms using ipad although they have got the latest adobe version installed. I dont have an ipad and not sure. Can some one advise if there is a limitation to the adobe readers in ipads? what can these users do to resolve it? what are the common problems with opening these advanced froms from ipads?

Thank you Niall...I had a read through the topic link you had provided and from what I understand, I believe these xfa forms might not work properly since the Reader for iOS does not support all features. I will just let my users know about it..

Thank you once again..

This doesn't solve your immediate problem, but we do have a tool that allows you to build forms and output them in both PDF(XFA), or HTML. We support several flavours of HTML, including desktop style and tablet style. This allows you to build your forms once, and have them work both within Reader and also on an iPad or other device.
