I've created a pdf form using Word and then converting it to pdf and then opening in LiveCycle Designer to add fields including drop-down menus. When my form is opened in Reader, the drop-down menus don't show up... What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for your replies...
You have rendered the pdf as pdf/a. Acrobat/Reader will automatically view the pdf in pdf/a mode, which means non-interactive mode. You will have to open Reader, go to Preferences and under Documents select never on pdf/a view mode.
Better way is to save the pdf as standard pdf, not pdf/a. This way each client doesn't have to change the preferences to be able to fill in the form.
Thanks for your quick reply... It took me awhile to find out how to save as a regular pdf from Word, but got it figured out...
