LiveCycle Designer ES 8.2
I'm very new to LiveCycle & have just created my first form with a "submit by email" button which sends the data from the form as an xml file.
I can see how sending as xml would make sense if the idea was to use the form to collect data from lots of sources that needed collating (e.g. a survey) but
for both tasks you need at least Acrobat.
For 1) because you want to submit the whole PDF, which requires additional rights applied to the form, so users with Reader are able to save changes to the PDF.
For 2) Acrobat has a distribute form workflow, you can use to automate the collection of form data.
Do you have Acrobat or only Reader?
In Addition to Radzmar Post you can try the below mentioned steps to send the completed form as PDF and not XML
If you want recipients using Reader to save form data, you'll need to make sure the PDF is Reader-enabled in Acrobat
Hope it helps
