Helps in creating forms that we normally used to create in Excel. For this reason alone it's a huge upgrade. Plus is relatively easy to use once you know how to use it. Also, it works best for forms that you need to fill in.

  • It enables me to quickly update and distribute forms that have been changed.
  • The layout features help ensure that the forms look professional.
  • The ability to preview what the final form will look like and how it will work, while still editing, is extremely helpful.

Cons
12d Synergy
  • 12d Synergy could provide additional analytical reporting on user behavior and usage out of the box.
  • Improved speeds when referencing shared files from other 12d model projects.

  • Biggest issue is the user friendliness for the designer. It is hard to get elements to do what you want if you are adding any sort of design to your form. In my case I make flyers which require not only the form fills, but also other elements like pictures and background design elements.
  • The import from PSD or AI function does not work properly most of the time. If you create a document with lots of visual elements, your best bet is to convert as much of that as possible to a rasterized image and then popping that in as the background rather than trying to import elements. They come out very wonky, colors are lost in conversion, and the layout doesn't come over.

Hands down prefer 12d Synergy. Bentley ProjectWise is overly complex, expensive and has a very cluttered interface.

We chose this solution because it offered more flexibility , decreased our overall expenses and is what allowed us to execute our operations and business needs effectively. Adobe LiveCycle is a step above all of its competitors. Your only setback will be the initial training time investments.
