That may be what it is. It's not even full Acrobat that cleans it up, it's simply opening and saving it in Adobe Reader. The fact that we only see the growth when opening the form via the browser seems to indicate there is a difference in the functioning of Adobe Reader and the control (supplied with Adobe Reader) which the browser uses to open a PDF.

We've have done that with our real forms showing this problem and the XML data does not grow, it's identical. The simple test form I created to reproduce the problem (which just has one field on it) doesn't have a schema defined on it.

The test form had that property set to Automatic. I changed it to Manually but I still see the issue unfortunately. I'm not sure if there is a way for me to actually attach my test form here. I don't have any place to host it that I could just link to.

We are seeing an odd form behavior and have isolated the apparent trigger to something we are doing in the form script. I'm hoping someone can confirm they see the same problem, details follow:We have a form generated in LiveCycle. It contains a text field. In the docReady event for that field we have javascript which sets the field to be readOnly (TextField1.access = "readOnly"). We reader extend the form so we can save it from reader and/or the plug-in/control which is used by a browser when r...

We have done some further testing and discovered a couple of important things:1) If we open a version of the form that has grown (even after several saves via the browser), but open it in Adobe Reader then save it, the form reverts to its original size. So, whatever the plug-in is adding to file on a save is being removed again if Adobe Reader is used.2) This is not just happening on the form mentioned above. It appears to happen on any form in which we have embedded XML data. We have another mu...

We are using reader extensions on the form to allow file saves.

I have an SAP Adobe form (PDF) and we are seeing a difference in the Save behavior between when it is viewed in Adobe Reader vs. the adobe plug-in(?) for Internet Explorer.When the form is viewed in Internet Explorer, every time the user saves the form the file size grows (even with no data changes in the form - i.e., open the form, hit save). This is not true if the form is opened in Adobe Reader.The form in question has multiple pages but the only fields directly bound to the SAP source are a ...
