XML Source edits not saved



Using LiveCycle Designer ES4 Version 11. Making modifications for accessibility, one requirement is to display the document title in the document window of the resulting static PDF. Instructions say to do the following:

  1. 1. To open the Xml source for a document, click View -> XML Source.

Verify if the following tag is available in the Xml:

<?originalXFAVersion http://www.xfa.org/schema/xfa-template/3.3/ ?>
  1. 2. If the tag exists, append DisplayDocTitle:1? to the tag. The resultant tag should be:
<?originalXFAVersion http://www.xfa.org/schema/xfa-template/3.3/ DisplayDocTitle:1?>

If the tag does not exist, add the tag with the DisplayDocTitle:1? append.

<?originalXFAVersion http://www.xfa.org/schema/xfa-template/3.3/ DisplayDocTitle:1?>

Note: You need to add this tag along with the other processing instructions. in the following parent node:

<template xmlns="http://www.xfa.org/schema/xfa-template/3.6/">

  1. 3. Save the document.

Only problem is, Designer doesn't save the edit in the XML Source after I make it - any thoughts?

Okay solved my own problem. A couple of things people need to know, which Adobe doesn't make clear.

1. You need LiveCycle Designer ES4 SP1 to implement the accessibility features. NOT what Adobe is currently distributing from its online store (at least not as of 3 days ago 12/1/2015).

    LiveCycle Designer ES4 SP1 is available at Download Adobe LiveCycle ES4 Service Pack 1‌. Adobe does provide a comprehensive description of what is included in LiveCycle ES4 SP1.

   It has some neat features for Accessibility - primarily

   1) The LiveCycle Accessibility Checker will get added to the Tools > Macro menu on LC Designer (read there was one, but until I downloaded the SP wondered why I was not seeing it).

   2) Allows implementation of the  <?originalXFAVersion http://www.xfa.org/schema/xfa-template/3.3/DisplayDocTitle:1?> tag in the XML source which allows you to display the document title in the window title of static pdf forms.

       This is described in the LiveCycle Designer ES4 Help File, Adding Details About the Form.
