What Action Profile and assets are you using for the subsequent steps?
The Start Point has a Document variable as the output, and the subsequent steps just use that Document variable. There's no asset or Action Profile specified for the subsequent steps. ( I think I'll lose the Signature if I specify Assets for the subsequent steps instead of using the Document variable, correct?)
Actually, I got PDF form displayed for the subsequent steps last night, no more XML pages.
I suspect it's because I only kept one Submit button (the one in the Process Fields) before, it worked when I kept both Submit buttons on the form... am I right?
That's your probelm. The submit button on the form is probably configured to submit XDP data. You then put that data in a document variable and use it for the rest of the process.
You just need to make sure the submit button submits PDF and not XDP data.
I don't think I have gotten it right still.
On the one that's "working", it has the Process Fields (which includes a button called AWS_Submit),
it has another submit button called "PDF_Submit" and this one has the "submit as PDF" set.
It's all working fine in the WorkSpace.
However, when I saved the PDF attachment in the Notification Email,
opened it with Reader X (10.0.0),
it says at least one signature was Invalid !
also, it only showed the "PDF_submit" button, not the button in the Process Fields block.
obviously, I was not able to submit this by email.
What could have caused this? and how to fix it?
You want only one submit button on your form otherwise it might be confused.
I would remove all the submit buttons and the process fields and start from scratch.
Add the process fields again. The visible button with the label submit is just a regular button that will invoke the hidden submit button (AWS_Submit). Configure the hidden submit button to submit PDF.
That should be all you need to do. No need to add multiple submit buttons.
Yes indeed! You solved all the problems.
I have read your Blog at http://blogs.adobe.com/livecycle/2010/11/how-to-complete-a-task-via-email-using-reply-to-c omplete.html#comment-636 too, and that's working great also.
Thanks very much!
