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.

I really like that this tool is a one stop shop that allows you to enter clear cut instructions for any user to follow. I've had very positive feedback from users describing how they like the format of the instructions and how easy it is to follow. I've actually showed employees how to use the tool and they have purchased for use in their departments

Pros

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

  • 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

Cons

Adobe LiveCycle ES4

  • A better guide or intro tutorial would have been great to have.
  • The learning curve is very steep.
  • File sizes can be improved upon as complex projects often push limits of this solution.

  • I would like to be able to make the backgound of an image invisible more easily.
  • It would be interesting to have access to a lasso tool like the one in Photoshop.
  • I could not find a third one, I am very satisfied with the product.

I think that the tool is excellent for what it is being used for. I particuarly like the ability to capture content from the screen whilst using the scroll wheel on my mouse. It is very annoying when your try to capture something with grab and you can't scroll which leads to multiple images

It's button centric for easy access to every feature. Everything allows undo! It works like any other standard Windows application. Everyone can be a professional without having to select every feature yourself by using the built in styles with just one click of a button in most cases. Every button is clearly labeled too.

Techsmith is great when responding to questions or where to find tutorials if you need help. If you lose your key or have issues with the software they are quick with helping you, I have never had an issue with TechSmith providing help with any of their software or just answering simple questions, they are always there to help.

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.

Our staff often uses MS Snipping Tool which comes installed on the PC. Extremely limited in its abilities and only capable of capture still images, we rely on Snipping for quick cut and paste captures. The image resolution created by this application doesn't provide sufficient quality for our documents and training.

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.

  • So much easier to convey concepts and issues inside and outside the organization. Reduces the needs for meetings and overly repetitive emails/ phone calls almost 10 fold once all parties can see what is being described.
  • I have captured videos for training and step by step guides which anyone can view at any time across the continent freeing up my time to focus on other pressing issues.
