I have created numerous documents in the ADOBE LiveCycle Designer 8.0. I cannot save these documents I receive the error:

Generating PDF Document...
Font Service: Default font typeface is Myriad Pro.
Expected a dict object.
Expected a dict object.

I have change all the controls on the document to have a font type of Arial, Myriad Pro and Times New Roman. I still get the same error. I have recreated the document from scratch and when I go to save the document I receive the same error. The documents has textboxes, four button and radio buttons.

Yea I tried reinsatlling, same issue. If I fist creat a editable pdf it works fine (run the form field finder wizard) . Then I start adding controls to  the form like buttons and radio controls. Then the form will not save. I cannot pin pointed it down to what control is causing the error.

I can't get LiveCycle Designer to work correctly.  We moved back to Acrobat 6, and everything works great with that version.

There is no need to go back to acrobat 6 - even with 8 or 9, you can still create the normal Acro Forms (without Designer). I don't use Designer, because it creates XML forms that are just wrapped in PDF, and you can no longer treat these files as normal PDF files.

Have you tried to change the font that's used for these fields and the rest of the document so that only one font (e.g. Helvetica) is used?

Yea,  I change the font to Arial, Times new Roman and Helvetica. WHen I changed the font to Helvetica I received the following error.

I think we'll create the documents like you mentioned earlier without the designer.

If you don't have a good reason to use Designer, then I would stick to the standard AcroForms (which are still supported in Acrobat 9). If you need any help with that, let me know.
