Previewing PDF Forms


Level 2

I recently had LiveCycle reinstalled on my computer.  Now everytime I go to preview the PDF I'm creating, it opens in a new Adobe Pro document.  I would much rather it open in the LiveCycle tab.  Is there some setting or something somewhere that I'm missing to do that?

check in the preferences (Ctrl + K) of Acrobat if the option "Display PDF in Browser" under the "Internet" settings is activated.

If not, activate it and then restart Designer.

That's what I was afraid of.  I have already tried that, but my previews are still popping up in a new Acrobat window rather than inside LiveCycle.  I think this may be something I just have to learn to live with...

You may try to turn off the "Display PDF in Browser" option once, restart Designer, then turn it back on again.

Sometime a registry setting got mixed-up by an de-/installation process.

A repair of Acrobat may also help (Located under Acrobat's help menu).
