I am sorry you are not having a good experience so far. Submit button placement is not something that users bring up as an issue or feature request so it has not made the list of new features. I'm not sure it defeats the purpose of FormsCentral but understand that it is important to you. We do have a "Feature Request" form where you can vote on popular existing ideas or add a new one of your own:
The PDF Form, I created with Acrobat Pro XI.
Thanks for the link to the feature request for Web Form. I will fill it out. I'm just amazed that this was not thought of when testing the software. FormsCentral is supposed to let USERS CREATE their own Web Forms and PDF Forms, well it does NOT do that if I cannot choose where to put the Submit button on MY Web Form. I don't want Adobe to design my Web Form, I want to design my Web Form so it matches my website's UI.
Jey Josh: How responsive is the Feature Request for FormsCentral? Looks like there is a lot of options that should be implemented and Adobe is still collecting votes. The submit button needs to change quickly. Clients do not want forms on their pages that they cannot make match their own UI and designs. Which means, I am going to start recommending other form providers and cancel my membership, since it does not allow me to create my own web forms. :/
I can't really comment on how we manage the Feature Requests but already noted that your request is not on the popular list, I would not hold your breath for the Submit button placement option at this time.
Thanks for the honest reply, Josh.
I will start referring all my clients elsewhere and I am taking my business elsewhere as well. FormsCentral has potential, but not for the professional web designer.
For whatever it is worth, I basically agree with rsn023. I will reiterate and add a few more comments:
- I generally use FormsCentral with acroforms that I develop in Acrobat XI. And yes...the placement as well as the look of the Submit button is very restricted and not at all good-looking. In a separate post, I have asked if there is any way to customize it. Although I do not consider this a deal-breaker, I have to admit that it is a pretty absurd restriction. It is a significant irritant to me.
- The web forms in FC are very beautiful, but you cannot do math! No math? I don't know about Adobe, but in the real business world we need our forms to do math. So web forms in FC are useless to me and I always use uploaded acroforms. I am paying full price for only half of a forms solution.
- And finally...Adobe creates even more confusion by offering LiveCycle Designer ES4. Now that is a great program. Problem is that it make acroforms look like junk. This is not just rhetoric...let me give you a basic example. In LiveCycle, when you create and place a field, it comes in with a field label. Pretty basic huh? This is what you would expect. But in Acroforms (which has been around for a long time) you have to create your own labels for each field...or you have to work with some static and awkward "boilerplate" from Word. OR you can kinda do a double-edit in acrobat by placing text elements and fields, but this requires you to constantly switch back and forth between text editing tools and forms editing tools in Acrobat. A form development platform that includes the field labels with the fields...is that such a hard concept for Adobe? I could go on.
