Adobe LiveCycle functionality

Hello,

 

Is it possible to take an existing PDF that does not have any predefined form fields, alter it to a template PDF file to support field input and automatically fill up the PDF template with values from an XML file?


I think Adobe LiveCycle does this but I just found out about the product, so I'm not sure.

Please direct me to where I can see how this can be done.

    Yes It is possible in Adobe Livecycle. Since you have mentioned you are new, I am telling where to start. Adobe Livecycle ES is a collection of different tools that does a lot of functionalities. One such tool is Adobe Livecycle Designer. You can see many examples for how to create a form in this forum or using predefined template using the Designer tool's Help Menu.

     

    Thanks,

    Jaison.
