1. I've created a form using Acrobat Pro 9 with embedded Livecycle Designer ES2.
2. One of actions used in this form is pressing a buttons to attach a file.
When opening file with Acrobat Reader X the buttons are not activated. What's can be the problem?
When you Reader-enable a document with Acrobat or LiveCyle Reader Extensions, certain usage rights are added that allow Reader to do things it normally cannot. One of these things is adding file attachments. Since Acrobat is not able to add this usage right, you will have to use LiveCycle Reader Extensions, but it's expensive.
Thank you for explanation, it seems I used two much complicated solution.
I will try to describe the tasks that I'm dealing these days. May be you can help with the advice.
I have created a simple questionnaore that I have to distribute to our supplier , they need to fill it and to attach few documents. What's the tools that can be used to create it?
Thanks in advance.
Is the form static or dynamic? Dynamic XFA forms do not allow commenting, but static ones do, as do forms created in Acrobat. Files can be attached as comments, but this is a manual process that cannot be done from a button.
When you save a file in LiveCycle Designer, you can save it as a static or dynamic form. A dynamic form allows fields to be automatically resized and objects (rows of fields, tables, pages, etc.) to be added at run-time. If you still don't know what type of form you have, you can Reader-enable it in Acrobat and see if allows you to add comments. If it does, then you have a static form and Reader users will be able to manaully attach files as comments.
