If you are importing a multi-page PDF into LiveCycle Designer ES2 to create a form using the “…Flowable Layout > Place Content In > Master Pages” method you may notice that the content of the pages are placed in a single Master page causing overlap.
This is an issue in LiveCycle Designer ES2 and has been addressed in later versions, including Designer ES3. If you require a quickfix for this issue in LiveCycle Designer 9 you should contact the enterprise support team.
If you are using LiveCycle Forms ES to render complex XFA forms as PDF and the forms contain subforms/tables which can split over multiple pages, you may notice some text-overlapping following a page break as follows:
You can use some processing instructions in the XDP template to control how the page break affects the field content. There are 2 processing instructions that can be used in this case to fix the text-overlapping issue, so that the contents no longer overlap the field boundaries:
<?layout allowDissonantSplits 1?>
<?layout allowJaggedRowSplits 1?>
You should add these PI’s to your XDP templates only if you are encountering the issue described above. You can test these PI’s in LiveCycle Designer ES by using the PDF Preview tab.
By adding these PI’s the text-overlapping is resolved and appears as follows on the rendered PDF form:
