It's true. Although you're having problems with Acrobat at the moment, it's not true that Acroforms are obsolete, and in fact have broader support than XFA forms, on mobile devices in particular.
Thank you for responding so kindly! Perhaps I was getting an extreme impression from the Adobe tech support- I meant that I wasn't finding tech/customer support for Acrobat. Your responses have been the only useful input I've gotten so far.
And I really love LiveCycle! It's so elegant for building large numbers of similar forms, and the dynamic capabilities mean that you can create a very complex form that still maintains a simple, easy to follow user experience. I'm devastated that mobile devices don't support that kind of functionality.
By obsolete, though, I mean that it seems clear that the future is online, and creating a PDF file to send around the office and to customers is not the most efficient way for me to assist in data collection for my company, so I need to get back up on the learning curve.
It looks as though LiveCycle has its own set of solutions for getting online, though, and I don't even know how to begin to compare the features available for LC with the feature set of Formscentral. I'll be looking over the documentation for both in an attempt to learn more.
Thank you for your help with the Acrobat forms, by the way. I'll be reporting back results!
