If you are using Dynamic XFA strictly to merge content (i.e. XML that is provided from the server), you can flatten the PDF before it gets to the end user. LiveCycle (AEM) Server and iText XFA Worker can do this.

Print the pdf made in Adobe Livecycle to Adobe PDF Printer and it will convert it to an editable pdf.

You cannot have PDF and XML at the same time attached to an e-mail I'm afraid.

Hi,Instead of readOnly use protected. This will disable all functions of the button and also exclude it from being focussed on when using the TAB key.this.access = "protected";

Thanks so much!prePrint event was not working, for whatever reason.initialize event is working.relevant = "-print" doesn't seem to do anything but I understand this was a "relatively late" addition to PDF, perhaps the forms-renderer I have does not support it [that is somewhat out of my control].So in summary: presence = "hidden" in the initialize event.

Undo is a little finicky in code windows. I recommend copy / pasting code blocks in notepad or similar so you can go back to old versions of code.

You will have to position and hide the fields that you want to add. You cannot add pages to static forms at runtime.

Not sure I'm following. if you just want to indicate there is more, you can use overflow leaders/trailers.

You can refactor your forms into multiple XDP files (using fragments), but if you want to store non-XDP (LiveCycle) content in your form, you can embed SWFs and images. All other formats can only be stored in a PDF as attachments.

Adobe LiveCycle has been withdrawn from the market. The replacement is AEM Forms (a server side suite). It would be nice if someone from Adobe would state whether the designer tool can be purchased standalone.

Many thanks altrue990​ ! Your reply makes a lot of sense.I did a lot of research, applied your recommendation, and came to the following conclusion....Most probably this issue happened because the table is being generated in the "Form Ready" Event of the page that has the table. I think this is causing the rendering engine to get confused. I remember that we are not supposed to change the layout in the form ready event, as this might cause repeated triggering of this event.When I imported the da...

LiveCycle Designer is available for purchase at the link below. It's not part of Creative Cloud and also hasn't been bundled with Acrobat for some time. This product isn't supported any longer, which is likely why it isn't on anyone's lists, but if you want or need it, you can get it.LC Designer - Adobe Store

Hi, You are correct, that you can't bind to a repeating XML instance twice. You will have to use JavaScript to keep them in sync. There is an example in this blog Duplicating subform structures

Re: PDF Fillable Forms made with LiveCycle Designer - "Permanency" of the technology

My thinking is that as long as Adobe sells AEM with XFA support, they will continue to support XFA in the Acrobat tools. I don't think they want to break backwards compatibility, especially in a format that is designed for long term archival. However, there is no guarantee. Flash was added, and subsequently removed from Acrobat. The depreciation of XFA in PDF 2.0 likely gives them an out to stop supporting it at any time they choose.

This is a long and complicated discussion aslfm. Which software do you mean?I STRONGLY recommend you print this form and sign it in ink. Anything else may run into legal trouble with the IRS as well as wasting hours or days on the computer.
