I am surprised that I have not found an answer to this. I know a lot about expanding fields, flowable content, etc. I need an in-line expansion, though, and can not figure out how to do it. A very simple (fictitious) example:Hello [field]. How are you today? This is the first time you called about [field], and I wanted to tell you all about it.We are having a meeting [field] to discuss that very thing.Obviously, it would be nice if line-wrap were also available.Ideas?

While working with LiveCycle forms, we received one from a customer that had an odd behavior. When looking at it through Acrobat reader, we got the data we expected. When attempting to use some other tools to extract data, we got a whole other set of data for the forms.Our customer(s) use the form as a template, pastes the latest data into the form, and then uses Save As to create a final copy to send to us. Using some Linux tools we found that the form was actually maintaining at least three di...

That's where a lot of frustration is coming up. Adobe implemented LiveCycle forms, which I think are wonderful, but can't seem to give us the ability to flatten the form (though I've seen a lot of people ask for it). Their answer is to make them read only...well, that's a form.At the same time, they tightened security on things like being able to programmatically save documents. I suppose that's also important, but they've closed the doors on being able to do many things.In my particular case, i...

I have to pull out my old work to be sure, but as I recall, I couldn't do that programmatically without user interface. Is that correct?

I want to be careful how I answer this....If I'm using AcroForms, I can save the file as "flattened." That gives me a PDF with all of the user data, but no fields. All of the formatting is still there (margins, etc.), but if one were to select Forms->Add or Edit Fields, Acrobat says there aren't any fields.THAT'S what I want...all data, no fields. If the Livecycle form expanded a field across multiple pages, and moved the fields below it to accommodate, I need that output to look right as well. ...

It's been a few versions, so I thought I would raise this again and see if I can get an answer....I have a LiveCycle form. I use LiveCycle because I need the functionality that allows a field to expand over multiple pages if necessary. If it weren't for that, I would be using AcroForms.Once a person sends me their completed form (of however many pages it turned out to be), I need to flatten it so that it looks the same as when it is submitted, but without any fields (I REALLY don't want to/can't...
