Hello all,This is great advice and I am thinking I could use this on one of my forms, the only question I would need to know an answer to is if this script could work on a drop down with multiple options that may need to be selected more than once. So the scenario goes we've got 6 activities that our stakeholder can choose from and a table would populate for them to fill in the details i.e. date; $rate etc however we need the end user to be able to duplicate the one activity they've chosen if th...

Hello SI_MSD7,Thank you for replying. It makes a lot of sense. We are only going to create fragments for those components that will be used multiple times for the simple fact of updating globally.The reason I was thinking we should probably use a template is so that the fragments that will be across the board standard i.e. logo's header footer etc they will be in position on that document whereas using a fragment each time you want to create a new document may see the positioning change and ther...

Hello,We are currently in the process of converting all of our manual forms/documents into live interactive forms using LiveCycle designer however the question has been raised "How can we create components that are going to be the same across all documents and copied and pasted?" I suggested fragments however the debate is whether it would be best to use a 'template' that perhaps we've designed and use it for each form? I understand that Livecycle have inbuilt templates but we won't be using tho...

Hi Niall,Thanks again for your help. That has helped a little. My next drama is that i cannot figure out at all is to get it to follow onto the next page instead of immediately after the section i want to repeat. Everytime i change the Pagination settings i loose my content on that page that has the section on it. I don't know how to change those settings to make it work. Any clues???I am so close in getting it right that it's frustrating not being able to find the right setting. The scripting w...

Hi Niall,Thank you for that help. It wasn't what i was after because i've tried that sort of stuff using the palettes but it doesn't seem to work. Am i supposed to script it using java script or something like that?I would like to know exactly how to add a row to a table with a button or add a repeated subform with using a button.Thanks again.

Hi,thank you for your help. So i would not need to have a submit button on the form as the person needing the form back will get it back if they send it out themselves?How else can i send out a from and get it back to the person assigned to the submit button?Also do you know where i can find some information on distributed forms and response tracking?Thanks.

Hi,I am recreating all of our forms into Active forms using Livecycle Designer 8.2 and the majority of our forms, that go out to a very large number of stakeholders, require a signature by one or more persons. I am wondering if anyone has come across a secure, effective, legal, user friendly way to add a signature to the form?I have not been able to find out alot of information on sigantures so any pointers will help or tips on where to find information.Thank you.Jennah

Hi,What do you mean by travel? Is that when it wont change all settings across the board? e.g another staff member with adobe acrobat wont have the same settings as i do?I am the only one creating the forms and using any adobe settings anyway so i guess it wont really matter that they dont have the same settings as i do but its not hard to change them on all pc's anyway.Thanks though.
