Hello, when I create a Form in LiveCycle Designer with signature fields, I open the form in Acrobat XI and save the form with extended features (File-->Save As Other-->Extended Features-->Enable Tools), but then when I open the "extended features" form in Acrobat Reader, the signature fields do not work (click the field, but no signature prompt appears). I do not have this problem when extended features are enabled in Acrobat X. Why do they not work when they are enabled in Acrobat XI?

Is there any easy way to make an "X" across a table cell? I'd like to draw two lines to opposite corners of the cell and have it appear as an "X", but each time I draw the second line and try to put it in the table cell, it always automatically becomes a single diagonal line that changes direction.

I'm trying to find a script that will calculate the average (mean) of user-entered data, the user may enter anywhere between 1 and 6 number values. This is what I've tried in FormCalc:var dcount=1;if Row3.Cell6 !=null then (dcount=dcount+1);if Row4.Cell6 !=null then (dcount=dcount+1);if Row5.Cell6 !=null then (dcount=dcount+1);if Row6.Cell6 !=null then (dcount=dcount+1);if Row7.Cell6 !=null then (dcount=dcount+1);(Row2.Cell6 + Row3.Cell6 + Row4.Cell6 + Row5.Cell6 + Row6.Cell6 + Row7.Cell6) / dco...

Works for what I intend, although I did have to add a multiplication factor of 100 to the result. Thanks.

I'm trying to get a calculated value to display to the nearest 0.01%. The forumla is simple: 288/12237 = 2.35%. However, when I set the data pattern to any of the percent options, the only number the calculation returns is 2%. How can I get the value to return as 2.35%?

I have a form where the user is required to enter two values (A and B) in order to perform a calculation. Problem is, the calculation is A/B, so when they enter Value A, an overflow error message immediately pops up on the form (because it is trying to divide by zero).What is the script so that the error message does not appear, so the user can enter both A and B values without the overflow error immediately appearing upon entering value A?

I've been having periodic issues with people trying to electronically sign PDFs. Saving the document to a server, having the signatories open it (one person at a time!) and then trying to sign and then getting an error message "The document could not be signed". This corrupts the file in terms of signatures; once that error appears, nobody else can sign any other signature space, they get the same error message, and signatures are deemed "invalid".Has anyone else experienced this issue, and if s...

Hello all, I'm trying to figure out how to add days from a given input date to output a new date,For example, the user enters the date in Cell 1, and Cell 2 will output whatever date is 3 days later.Row1Cell2 = Row1.Cell1 + (3 days).So for example, if I enter June 26, 2012, the output would be June 29, 2012...or if I enter June 29, 2012 the output would be July 2, 2012.What is the correct syntax to use to produce this result?

I zeroed in on this same error message today. I can't tell you exactly what was causing it, but I can tell you exactly the object that was causing the issue. It was a 1-row, 2 column table. In one cell was some text that included hyphenation ("in-process"). In another cell was a drop-down menu with only two options defined: pass and fail.I noticed that as I was scrolling through the document, as long as this particular table was visible, I would get the same "bad hyphenation" message continuousl...

So when I use Acrobat Pro, and paste a link to a server folder, the link works correctly. (I have to copy the folder link and then put "file:" in front of it to make it work, but it works).For example, if I paste the text:file:\\cgi\shares\Departments\Operations\Document Control,a window opens up in Firefox and goes to:file:///\\cgi/shares/Departments/Operations/Document Controlwhich is correct and shows the folder structure and available files to open.However, when the same link is pasted into ...

On a form, I've got a script/button that when clicked, takes the text link - which is a network server link - and changes it into a hyperlink. The code in the green button on the form below works and does this well. However, because the link has "\" type slashes (paths similar to "\\netapp\group\subdirectory\"), all of the slashes are escaped and rendered as "%5C". I know that they are being escaped, but I need to disable that for the HREF section. Ideas how to do this? https://acrobat.com/#d=xE...

Nope, that doesn't work. It only prints the "/n/n" as text before the message. Putting it outside just before the quotes does not work either, that disables the button function completely.

This sort of works but it's a very clumsy workaround for an end user...first you paste the link text into the field, then you have to highlight the text, then CTRL +E, then you have to paste the text into the resulting window. And then you can't just click the hyperlink to open it, you have to right-click and select "Open Hyperlink."A five-step process to get a link pasted in so that it can work, and then you have to do something non-intuitive to open it; not really user friendly.I did actually ...

Ok, that's 95% there. The last 5% is this: My text fields are in table cells, and once I enter text in a cell and exit, it does indeed become white...except for a border that sticks around the inside of each cell that for some reason remains gray after my text is entered.How would I set it so that the whole cell becomes white, and not just most of the cell with a border that stays the initial gray?

Placing the script in the docReady event did fine to turn of the field highlights for the whole document, but the now the shading script above does not work. Instead of shading the table cell gray, I now get an "inner border" box within the table cell that looks funky.Thanks for part of the solution, I hope the other part can be provided.

LC ES2 9.0.0I'd like end users of pdf forms to be able to insert working hyperlinks into text fields. Can this be done? I tried to create a text field in a form, but the hyperlink only reads as text and not as an active link. Is there a setting, or special type of field somewhere, either in LC ES or in Acrobat Reader to turn on so this is possible?

Hmm...there are no errors in the above script, but when I open the form in Reader or Acrobat Pro, the text fields default to blue tinge anyway. I'd like that blue tinge to go away and see gray or white.I tried the script in the first "Description" field in this document and there seems to be no change:https://acrobat.com/#d=8Y-rClzM4G6C*BJOYY-tYQ

This works but not completely...unfortunately the form doesn't read asterisks, and returns all lower case. So the data AA1234*5590 scanned on the barcode returned as aa12345590.I don't suppose there is a way to set the field to format to all CAPS letters?

Not a whole lot of information on the forum on this.I was experimenting with the barcode objects in the library in LC ES2 (9.0.0, Windows 7) and it looks like they turn manually entered data into barcodes.Is the reverse function available? To put it more specifically, what I'd like is to be able to scan a barcode label and then have the numbers the barcode represents appear in a field, without the barcode image.Can this be done in Designer, or do I need an extra piece of software/module to do th...
