I just purchased the creative cloud annual contract monthly subscription. Installed all the software, just cause and I see the Adobe LiveCycle Designer software is installed though I have no idea what software it came with.
I see no where on the site or in the help that tells me what this software is or does. I was looking for the quick description that says what it is for. Does Adobe just assume we know what every single software of theirs is and does? I don't even know what software it was installed with.
I watched a minute of a video on their Adobe TV site but all I caught were buzz words that makes me think it has something to do with acrobat and pdf's but that's about it.
When I was using CS3 I primarily stuck with Dreamweaver, Fireworks and Flash.
Sorry if I seem like an idiot but really just wanted a quick this is what this software is and does description but I can't find it anywhere in the softwares help or on their site.
It's a design tool for dynamic forms that can then be rendered in either XML or PDF formats. It comes bundled with Acrobat Pro X. It has some really nice features too - I've recently used it to create a questionnaire to track progress with a PDSA cycle from a number of different types of participants. When they complete and submit the form, it comes to me as an email and when I open it, it automatically asks me if I want it compiled with other responses received. It tracks who and when submitted so that I can chase the latecomers. And then exports the compiled date out into Excel or a variety of other formats. Saves me a ton of time
For those who are reading this posting, it's a good reminder that Adobe LifeCycle Designer is only available and only installed with the WINDOWS version of Acrobat Pro X. If you are a Macintosh user, don't bother looking for it because it does not exist. Fortunately, rest of the forms tools in Acrobat work fine on the Mac.
