Adobe LiveCycle ES4

If you are creating forms that you might normally create in Excel, this is an excellent upgrade. PDFs are easy to use and relatively easy to create.

If you are designing a template for any sort of creative piece, LiveCycle is frustrating to use, but it can be done. It'll just require you to have patience and work around the limitations.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

Because LiveCycle comes with the Adobe Suite, I've never really looked outside of it because it was something I already had access to.

Return on Investment

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

  • Having LiveCycle enables me to offer more products in my lineup, so that is always a good thing. Most clients like the idea of being able to purchase a template and then making changes themselves, so I've had quite a few sales here. However it's not really something that will make me rich overnight or anything. It's just a tool that enables me to have different products.
  • If they could figure out a way to improve the limitations in terms of design capability in the form creation process, I could probably leverage this software a lot better since I would use it more.
