Following are a few tips and workarounds for LiveCycle PDFG. Please note that the workaround marked as unsupported are not officially supported by Adobe.
- [Unsupported] On UNIX servers customers can use 64-bit OpenOffice to do OpenOffice based conversions. The obvious benefit from this is the performance improvement we get. To achieve this just point JAVA_HOME_32 to 64 bit version of Java. Same can achieved on widows too but you may observe immediate conversion failures for other native file formats.
- [Unsupported] Any file which can be opened by Acrobat (like a text file) can be converted to PDF using LiveCycle PDF Generator. You just need to add the comma separated file extension (for example txt for text files) in XPS to PDF file-type setting.
- A user/administrator can directly jump to PDF Generator UI by hitting http(s)://<server-name>:<port>/pdfgui. This way a user can skip couple of clicks on UI to land on PDF Generator user interface.
