Somehow, I was able to do it. I started with a static form and was able to re-save it as dynamic when I went to Save As in LiveCycle Designer.I worked on a form last week that was originally created in Word - a PDF was created from that, then opened in LiveCycle Designer to assign fields, etc. I was asked to make some of the fields expandable, so I re-saved it as Dynamic (why the option was available is what I'm trying to figure out). The "untitled subform page 1" was set to "positioned" as a de...

Oh, I see where that is... instead of opening the PDF, select "New" and "Import PDF". I tried that option and it comes in as a mess. The masthead dissappears and there's a billion little "rectangle" objects all over the place.

The form was created in MS Word than saved as a PDF. When I go to open the PDF in LiveCycle it opens as default file type "Adobe LiveCycle Designer Files (.pdf; xdp)". I can't use any other options since it's showing me what files it can open.The dynamic form I just worked on was created the same way. Word to PDF to LiveCycle, so I know it's an option somehow.

When I create a PDF I don't have the option in LiveCycle to save it as Acrobat Dynamic rather than Static PDF. I just worked on a PDF that I was able to re-save as Dynamic, but I didn't create the PDF so no idea what I'm doing wrong.I know these direction have been posted before, but I can't get it to work...In LiveCycle I open the PDF, go to File > Form Properties > Defaults and change the Target Version at the top of defaults to a later version. PDF Render format drop down menu now has Dynamic...

That creates total chaos but I think I may have figured out what is going on. I found an example of the same issue..."The form was a converted word doc and it basically exploded when I set the layout to flowable. There were so many remnants from word that most of the form was jettisoned off the bottom of the page. It looked like garbage.Hierarchy is important because the flowable layout (with: ‘top to bottom’ flow direction) relies on the order of the elements for positioning.So we resolved to r...

What if you have the Subform that contains all the fields expand and flow, but don't allow the individual Subforms to split over pages? Is that what you mean?I'd like to know if this is a bug as I am creating a form pretty much like the one you describe. If people filling in a long text box suddenly find it goes wonky when they click back into it to edit it on a second page, it's going to be too confusing.

I’ve checked numerous posting on the forum and can't solve my problem with flowable forms using LiveCycle Designer 8.2. This is my first stab at creating expandable text fields and although there are numerous posting about not being able to get the text to flow onto a second page, none of the solutions work for me. The existing form only has 1 page, but I need it to create a second page if the text boxes expand.I have 4 text fields that need to be able to expand and flow. Each of my text fields ...
