The version of LiveCycle I am currently using is: Adobe LiveCycle Workbench ES4 18.104.22.16830830.1.326386.
Whenever I create a new workflow and have to reader extend the document that the workflow creates, it seems like there is a bug in the GUI that does not allow for this feature to work.
The step by step process of replicating the situation I found myself in, is as follows:
When you deploy the project, you will notice the pdf that is generated is not actually reader extended, at all. I am not sure if I miss a quick fix that is related to this, or if somehow this is a bug that went unnoticed until now.
The only workaround we have found is to actually manually change the applyRE and credentialAlias in the xdp_dci xml file associated with the new PDF (which gets shoved onto the LiveCycle server.
I have not been able to find any documentation or questions about this issue, hopefully someone in this thread has found a solution.
