Issue

If you are using LiveCycle Output to generate PDF documents using XDP files as input, you may encounter the following exception and no PDF will be returned:

0000012a XMLFormAgentW E com.adobe.livecycle.formsservice.logging.FormsLogger logMessage
ALC-OUT-002-017: mid,tid: 29435,23593162.1 sev: f text: Failure to automatically determine column '8' width.

Failure to automatically determine column '5' width."

If you load the same XDP file in Designer ES2 and goto PDF Preview, you may notice the same message as a warning in the log, but the PDF will be correctly rendered and displayed:

Failure to automatically determine column '5' width
