Apple PDF viewers barely work with regular Acroforms and don't work with XFA forms created in LiveCycle Designer. Even the mobile versions of Adobe Reader don't work with XFA: Adobe Reader Mobile and XFA forms from LiveCycle Designer | Adobe LiveCycle Blog .

2D bar codes won't work with Adobe Reader, but will work with Acrobat, so open the PDF in Acrobat to test it out. There's no such thing as LiveCycle Reader, but for 2D barcodes to work in Adobe Reader you can use LiveCycle Reader Extensions (Forms and extension modules | Adobe LiveCycle Enterprise Suite 4 ) to add the corresponding usage right, but this is not inexpensive.

Re: Include a link to attached files: is it possible?

Acrobat can't enable normal file attachments. It can enable commenting, thus allowing Reader to attach files as comments, which is a manual process. This process can be initiated via JavaScript, but the user still has to navigate and select the file to be attached. LiveCycle Designer can create static forms which allow this with Reader.

When you Reader-enable with Acrobat, it does not include the usage right that allows Reader to add file attachments. Reader does allow user to add attachments as comments, and it can be done via JavaScript, but not with a dynamic XFA form.

Not the end user, but the person who is distributing the form to the end users. That Acrobat license allows the licensee to Reader-enable documents and distribute them, but it does not allow the licensee to sell Reader-enabled forms to someone else who distributes them.

If you want dynamic tables, you'll need to create them in LiveCycle Designer. You can create static forms in LiveCycle Designer based on an existing PDF, but you can't make such static content dynamic in LiveCycle Designer.

Re: Allowing users to digitally sign and save LC form with Reader

Reader Extensions is server-based software from Adobe that is used to add usage rights to a PDF. These rights allow Adobe Reader to do things it normally cannot, such as digitally sign XFA forms. Acrobat Pro can also add the digital signature usage right at a much lower cost.

The document has to be Reader-enabled with Acrobat or LiveCycle Reader Extensions.

If you Reader-enabled the document with Acrobat, the form data import/export usage right is not included. Since it's not, you won't be able to use the importData JavaScript method, either with Acrobat or Reader. You'd have to add the usage right via LiveCycle Reader Extensions (or whatever it's called nowadays) for it to work.

A form that's Reader-enabled with Acrobat won't allow importing data with Reader. You'll need to Reader-enable with LiveCycle Reader Extensions for that.

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

It's impossible to say if support for XFA in Acrobat/Reader will be in the future. Most non-Adobe PDF viewers and Adobe's mobile PDF viewers have limited or no support for XFA forms, dynamic in particular, which has been a significant problem for a while. Acroforms have significantly more support and are part of the ISO 32000 standard, unlike XFA. JavaScript as used in Acroforms is being standardized, but I don't believe the XFA counterpart is.

There is no type of check box that behaves that way. You can fake it using buttons and JavaScript, as demonstrated in the following sample: http://acroscript.net/pdf/demos/multistate_4.pdfYou'll have to study it to see how it works. Note that you can only rely on this technique working with the desktop versions (Windows/Mac) of Adobe Reader and Acrobat, not other PDF viewers, mobile viewers in particular.

If you don't want them to do that, you can apply standard security restrictions to prevent it but still allow normal use of the form (in most cases).

You can't, but if it's a self-signed ID that you created with Acrobat or Reader, you can create another.

Reader-enabling in Acrobat should make it savable in Reader. It hard to say what's wrong without seeing the form. If you can post it somewhere I'd be happy to take a look.

You don't need Acrobat, your client does. It's far less cost than LiveCycle Reader Extensions, which would have been the only option before Acrobat DC was available. Licensing costs can be as low as $14.99/month. So if their need is limited, it can be done for very little.

You can't use Reader, you have to use Acrobat. So your client will have to get Acrobat and Reader-enable the forms that you develop. If you don't have Acrobat, you can download and install the trial version so you can test this out.

An option is to Reader-enable the form with Acrobat DC. It doesn't have the licensing restrictions related to enabled documents that previous versions do. You won't be able to Reader-enable documents for your client with Acrobat, but your client can.
