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 well suited to capture screens for troubleshooting and tutorial purposes. We build documents, sites, and courses with image gathered using Snagit. However, if you're looking for higher features for screen capture such as cursor highlighting, you'll need to look into spending more for Camtasia.
Snagit has limited image editing features, so it less suited for manipulating the images that you capture.

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.

  • Snag anything and everything, even full pages on the web (with scroll)
  • Ability to record videos, we do a lot of screen records for a variety of reasons without ever thinking twice.
  • Very user-friendly editing and markup tools help achieve a lot in under 30 secs

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.

  • Video capture - the feature is great when it works. It tends to get stuck on saving the file even to my local HDD and I have to kill the program in my task manager.
  • The new menu for tools in 13 is less intuitive than it was in previous versions.

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 have used the built in Snip-it program in Windows 10 and while serviceable it doesn't hold a candle to the power and simplicity of Snagit. I do not make the decision to purchase or install any software but I am glad that our IS department continues to support SnagIt as the tool has become a staple for me in my role.

Return on Investment

  • LiveCycle has ensured that we are able to get a lot done, with little manpower.

  • Because my team uses snagit and we have a standard for what edits we use to create specific documentation it has added a great deal of uniformity to our screenshots that we use. This has been a huge plus for us and allows our documentation to be of a higher quality.
  • Snagit has given me the chance to make my documentation more thorough. The editing features allow me to point out and show a person what I need them to see by means of my choosing. This overall provides greater detail.
  • Editing is faster and easier. I no longer need to have 2 programs in order to take a screenshot and edit. I simply click my hotkeys, it opens the editing program when done, then stores it in the library for later use. It greatly reduces the time it normally took.
