Adobe LiveCycle ES4

We use PDF forms for our submissions to the USPTO as well as for obtaining signature documents. With LiveCycle, I can update forms, save them, load them into my docketing database, and have them pre-populated with data. This process ensures continuity, less chance for error, and the ability to save the paralegals time when it comes to preparing filings.

Nothing I know does what this does, most do archiving but not sending to the level this does.

Pros

  • 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.

  • Archives documents - all your documents in one place that you can retrieve as they were printed.
  • Emails documents - printing and emailing in one easy step, just print to the DocLink queue and DocLink reads the email address and sends it.
  • Faxes documents - so your recipient does use email? You can set the document to fax if email is not available.

Cons

  • 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.

  • Need to map fields to process documents, this is a manual process that needs to be automated for the template.
  • Sends thru a print queue, sometimes the queue goes offline and you don't know it right away.
  • Doesn't always tell you if the fax delivery failed, this is partially dependent on the fax software communications.
  • Limited fax support, hard to match up the DocLink server with faxing solution that's compatible when the server is virtual.

Alternatives Considered

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

Document sender u can only send one at a time, doclink sends mass emails all at once and can archive all your documents, making it a complete solution.
