Adobe Livecycle Email

Posted on 2010-11-17

I have constructed a collection of Adobe Livecycle forms and the client has specified that the output should only be PDF rather than XML.

The forms do successfully send the PDF via email, however the size of the PDF files are large (400 kb), whereas if I was to process the PDF by sending it to PrimoPDF it reduces the size of the file to only 32 kb.  Is there a function I can embed into the Livecycle PDF form that can convert the form to the smaller printed size PDF file?


Cheers

Livecycle forms are PDF files only on the surface, they contain a XML form, and a copy of the form so that a PDF viewer can display that information. This makes them larger than a pure PDF file. By printing the document to PrimoPDF, you are getting rid of the XML representation of the form, and you end up with a non-interactive PDF. You cannot do that from within Acrobat (or Reader). There are two form systems built into Acrobat: AcroFroms would give you smaller forms because they don't carry the extra weight of the XML form.
