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.

Snagit

Snagit is very useful when you need to make screen captures that need to be very precise and aesthetics. The precision with wich you can select certain areas of an image is surprising. It has the option to select exactly what you want or to select certain frames of the screen which is very helpful when you have to present frames from an application for example.

Pros

  • Ease of use for end users - the forms made from LiveCycle work flawlessly
  • Adding sections dedicated to pictures or other elements - there is some room for design here
  • Variety of choices for types of input to be added to each form and many options for configuring each of them
  • Works REALLY well for forms that just require text information to be filled in

  • Quick screenshots - One key capture and mouse to resize and focus the area of capture. Nothing could be simpler!
  • Easy markups and notations - So easy to add notes, highlights or straight lines. Can also draw freehand and erase.
  • Quick video capture - Great for quick How-to videos.
  • Quick editing. Can draw and erase without the use of the more expensive albeit more powerful photoshop. This is low res editing but great in a pinch.

Cons

  • There are so many bells and whistles it can be intimidating.
  • It is not a product you just pick up and use, there is some training needed.

  • I use the Scrolling Window option often to capture screens that are longer than one window. This feature can be a bit bumpy depending upon how the developers have defined that screen. For example, some scrolling windows will not work correctly in SnagIt's scrolling window function. With those, I have to capture each window separately and either piece together in the Editor as one window, or show as three separate parts of one window.
  • If you are used to using a robust graphics program, you will be frustrated with SnagIt's editor. It is fine for many things, but is not intended to be a heavy duty graphics program. You may need to have both.

It's a simple next next finish install. The SnagIt Library in the user profile should probably be backed up to make sure they have access to their old screen captures. We frequently will go back to previous captures and add context bubbles etc. when software changes to show the "old" vs "new". Also, go to SnagIt's website and download the additional Stamp Sets for the user. These are terrific. I wish there was one download to get them all, but you have to download and install them one set at a time. It's worth it - especially for training how-to's.

Alternatives Considered

I have only ever used LiveCycle for our PDF form creation. I am not sure what other options there are, but we have never needed to look into anything else as LiveCycle works for us.

I no longer remember how it compared to other similar tools. I was impressed with its ease of use, its customer support, and with all that I could do with it.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • This is so much quicker than the built in Windows Snip feature. Just for that one feature alone, we've saved hours in our IT Department on just one large training guide.
  • The ability to go beyond a simple screenshot and make the snags jump off the page with the built in effects have saved not only hours per training document we develop, but saved tremendously on the cost of purchasing every person in the department a full blown out graphics program like Adobe Illustrator. SnagIt has everything we need at a fraction of the cost.
