Chrome has a PDF viewer with very limited functionality - it may just ignore the parts that are causing you problem in this case

The field configuration is different for the fields that do not print - you need to complain to the author of the file. Here is how the fields that do print are configured:I selected the second field in the 13B row, and the "Presence" setting shows "Visible". Now let's do the same for a field that does not print:As you can see, "Presence" now is set to "Visible (Screen Only)" - that means that the field will not print (valid settings for Presence are "Visible", "Visible (Screen Only)", "Visible ...

As Bernd mentioned, this is not an AcroForm, but a form created with LifeCycle Designer. I will move your question to a more appropriate forum. One thing you can do to make it easier for the experts to help you with your problem is to make a filled out for available that shows the problem. You can upload it to e.g. the Adobe Document Cloud, and then share the link here. See here for more information about how to do that: Share Documents via Adobe's Document Cloud - KHKonsulting LLC

The printable/non-printable property is on a per field basis, so just because other field are printing OK does not mean that some of the fields may not have a different configuration. With the free Adobe Reader, you cannot view the filed settings, nor can you modify them, so the author of the form is the only one who can actually help you.

Yes, even tough I don't think there is anything different between enabling the form in Acrobat X vs. Acrobat DC. It all comes down to the license that allows you to do that.

You mentioned that you are using Acrobat X - that version does have the 500 form limit. Acrobat DC no longer has that limitation in it's EULA. You can check for yourself (or have your lawyer check) by reviewing the Acrobat X EULA and compare it with the Acrobat DC version.

You've posted in the Acrobat JavaScript forum, but your problem looks like it's related to LiveCycle Designer. I suspect that you are using JavaScript code, but the language type is set to FormCalc and not JavaScript.I've moved your question to the LiveCycle Designer forum.

Dean,As I mentioned before, the error message points to the resolveNode() call returning null because it cannot find the field name you've specified. In XFA forms, it's important that you know where your fields are, relative to where you want to use them.I would suggest that you let Designer figure out how it can "get to" the field in question. You can do this by using the following approach.The line that is not working is as follows:var cCCAddr = xfa.resolveNode("ClientEmail").rawValue;Remove t...

This error message indicates that the script has a problem getting the value of the field ClientEmail - this is not related to your overall email issue you had when you started this question.

Again, what you describe sounds like you are running this in Reader and not in Acrobat. Most of these error messages are about a validation event. I would recommend that you post a different question about these errors, they don't seem to have anything to do with your original email submission problem. This way, you may get some new eyes on your problem.

This sounds like you are running the free Reader, and not Adobe Acrobat Pro. When you go to the "Help" menu and look at the "About" option, what does it say?

In Acrobat XI Pro, you should be able to use Ctrl-J to see the JavaScript console.

Does this happen on both Acrobat and the free Reader? if it also happens in Acrobat, then open up the JavaScript console (Ctrl-J) and look for error messages. If it only happens in Reader, open up Reader's Preferences, go to the JavaScript category and enable "Show console on errors and messages".Exception handing in JavaScript is nothing specific to Acrobat, it's just standard JavaScript. Here is some information about how to do that: https://www.w3schools.com/js/js_errors.asp

No need to distribute, just attach the reader-enabled file to an email or upload it to a web page. When you "Distribute", Acrobat will actually try to reader-enable the document as well. The script is form specific, because it is trying to get information from certain fields. If these fields are not there, you will have to either adjust the script, or make it resistant against missing information. You can do that using a try/catch exception handler.

Sorry for the delay, but participating here in the forums comes after family, work, eating and sleeping, so sometimes it takes a bit longer until I can reply I assume this is happening in the free Reader. The reason for this is that even though recent versions of the free Reader can fill and save AcroForms (the type of form you create in Adobe Acrobat), XFA forms (the ones created in LiveCycle Designer) are not supported by this "free" feature. You will have to reader-enable your form in Adobe A...

There is noting wrong with your form, this is just the way XFA forms (the kind produced by LiveCycle Designer) behave when you try to open them in a PDF viewer that does not support this "flavor" of PDF document. Chrome and FireFox now come with their own PDF viewers, and the only way to turn them off is to have the browser open the PDF file in an external application. See here for more information: Take a look at these pages, they contain Adobe's troubleshooting tips for problems with PDFs in t...

You are using an email submission button - which sounds like the right thing to do, but in this case that's wrong: The stock email submission button is a one-trick pony, and it does exactly what it's designed to do: It submits the form to the email address you used when you first set up the form. As you may have noticed, you cannot add a "click" handler to this button (and I assume that's the reason why you added the script as a mouse-up event handler), because it's already hard coded to do that...

I tried to send you a direct message with my email address, but the forum software is not cooperating right now. When you click on my name in blue just above this comment, you can find a link to my web site, which has my email address in the lower right corner. I cannot promise that I will get to your document right away - my paying customers always come first.

This looks like this document is part of a "distribute form" workflow. This means that you are very likely not even running the script that is associated with the button. BTW: You should see some output on the JavaScript console. There are a few "console.println()" commands in my code to print the field information retrieved from the form. If you don't see that, the script is not running, and therefore you are not getting any of the behavior programmed in it. Are you using the "distribute form" ...

You need to specify parameters to the Doc.mailDoc() function. See the code that I provided for the correct syntax.

When you look at the email header of the email that you receive, what is in the "CC:" line? Does it also fail if you only have one email address in the "CC" line (meaning, you are not specifying a beneficiary email address)?
