LiveCycle Designer ES2: Unable to save old XDPs with external data binding option

Issue

If you are attempting to save an XDP file in LiveCycle Designer ES2, created with an earlier version of Designer (i.e. 7, 7.1 or ES), then it can occur that the Save process never completes, and you must kill the Designer process manually in Task Manager.  If you analyse the files on your local disk, you will notice some tmp files with large file sizes.

Reason

This issue is related to the Data Binding option Allow binding to data not defined by the default data connection.  For some forms that contain data connections, Designer ES2 can get stuck in an endless loop while saving the XDP to an intermediary tmp file.  You will see the tmp file will contain a huge number of repeated entries related to the DataDescription similar to the following:

<DATACONNECTION xmlns:dd=”http://ns.adobe.com/data-description/” dd:additions=”$template(DATACONNECTION)”/>

Solution

This issue has been fixed in LiveCycle Designer ES3 and later cumulative QuickFixes for Designer ES2.  You should ensure you are using the latest QF for Designer ES2, or contact your support representative.

Workaround

Removing the data connection will allow the file to be saved, and also disabling the option in the form properties Allow binding to data not defined by the default data connection.  Also putting the sample XML data/schema file used to create the data connection into the same folder as the XDP, opening the XDP, refreshing the Data connection, will then allow to save properly.

Acrobat/Reader 10: Save button not working for PDFs referenced from long URLs

Issue

If you are using Adobe Acrobat/Reader in Firefox/Chrome to view PDF files from long URLs you may notice that  the Save button is not working as expected.  It may be disabled (greyed out), or it may be enabled, but clicking on the button does not bring up the Save dialog to save the PDF to the local file system.

In some organisations the PDF files may be loaded from complex applications which require long URLs to serve parameters with the PDF.  For example:

http://helpx.adobe.com/content/dam/kb/en/837/cpsid_83709/attachments
/Acrobat_Enterprise_Administration.pdf?timestamp=t1115222011102&a=1234567890
123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789
&dkmtid=doc&ext=.PDF#FDF=http://server/XML.xfd

The URL above will show the PDF, but the Save button will not work as expected:

Reason

This is an issue with some versions of Adobe Acrobat/Reader 10 in Firefox/Chrome, and will be resolved in a later update for Acrobat/Reader.  The issue occurs when the URL contains more than 259 characters, as Firefox attempts to use this URL as the file-name in the Save dialog.  Such a long URL can exceed a file system limit and therefore the Save dialog does not appear.

Workarounds

  • Use shortened URLs to avoid the issue.
  • Use Acrobat/Reader in Internet Explorer.
  • Use Acrobat/Reader 9 with Firefox/Chrome.

Solution

This issue does not happen with the latest version of Acrobat/Reader 11, and will be fixed in a future release of Acrobat/Reader 10.
