Combining XML and PDF Files

Apr 12, 2012 1:55 PM

Hi, I have a form created in Adobe LiveCycle, and I need to be able to take this form and merge it with some PDF forms.  When I go try to "Combine Files into PDF" It says the XML form cannot be combine.  Is there a way around this?  Using the "Create a Portfolio" is not an option.


I have Adobe Pro X


Thanks for any assistance you can give on this matter.

    First transform xml based form to non-interactive form and then merge.

    Dynamic Interactive Forms cannot be combined with other PDFs. You will need either LiveCycle Assembler or LiveCycle Output to flatten the interactive form, and then it can be merged with other non interactive pdfs.


    If you don't have LiveCycle, one thing you can do in Acrobat is print the form to the Adobe Printer, which will create a non interactive version of your form, and this PDF could be combined with other PDFs.

    Yes, as kjaeggin said, after you transfter it to a non interactive PDF, then you can merge that PDF with other PDFs using LiveCycle Assembler.
