I too have a need to edit a form created in LiveCycle Designer. I see now that it has been renamed to Adobe Experience Manager Forms (AEM Forms). Getting a trial version requires working with a sales person. Not so interested in that...

Proposed Use: We will use the dynamic form as a template in a software program that will populate the fields and spit out a completed form?

Issue: We need to edit the field behavior of some fields to allow the entry of decimal points. Right now, the fields only allow whole numbers.

My question(s):

  1. Can I take an interactive PDF form and convert it to dynamic in (AEM Forms)?
  2. Is there a way to create a new dynamic form in Acrobat? Using the (AEM Form) to start with or from scratch)
  3. Can I open the dynamic file (AEM Forms) in Acrobat and edit? Keeping it dynamic.

If your form is static XFA, you could try this: http://apps.practicalpdf.com/xfa2pdf/ You could then edit the form in regular Acrobat.

What do you mean by dynamic? It has a very particular meaning in LiveCycle/XFA which is to grow or shrink the form based on data. Acrobat has no support for editing dynamic forms, as it can only edit AcroForms, which are static.

Print the pdf made in Adobe Livecycle to Adobe PDF Printer and it will convert it to an editable pdf.
