NEW FEATURES (WHAT WAS DESIGNER PREVIOUSLY?)

Designer was born out of two different programs, Form Designer 4 and Output Designer 5, after Adobe acquired their creator Accelio in 2002. When Adobe decided to create the LiveCycle initiative, it merged these two programs into one: Adobe LiveCycle Designer 6.

In Designer's current incarnation, Adobe has included some welcomed additions. First is its integration with Acrobat 7. Because of its origins outside Adobe, earlier versions of Designer generated forms in proprietary formats that were still supported until version 6. In the current version Designer has gone “full PDF,” and forms created with it are compatible with Acrobat 7. If you choose Acrobat's Advanced, Forms, Create New Form menu option, Designer is launched. In Designer, clicking on the PDF Preview tab (more about it later in this chapter) displays some basic Acrobat tools and Acrobat's Navigation Tabs pane (see Figure 46.2).
