This feature is available only in the stand-alone version
You can publish your form designs to a shared or web folder where
many users or other applications can access them. If a form design
contains links to external files, the links are modified to reflect
the new location of the file. You need write access to the folders
to which you publish. Your network administrator can set up the
permissions you require.
Publishing to the LiveCycle repository
If you are using the stand-alone version of Designer and
want to use resources, such as images and fragments, that reside
in the LiveCycle repository, you can set up a web folder on your
file system and map it to the repository. When you publish the form,
links to the resources are maintained. You use the Publish to Repository
command to copy the files into the LiveCycle repository.
Alternatively, you can create the form design on your file system.
When you complete the form design, you can drag and drop the folder
and any sub-folders into the appropriate folder in the Workbench

To publish a form to a repository
can put a copy of a form and its linked files in a shared or web
folder where it can be accessed by many users or other applications.
When you publish a form to a repository, changes to file names,
file types, and references to external files (images) occur only
in the published copy. If the form contains a link to an external
file, when the form and files are published, the list in the form
is modified to reflect the new location of the file.
You can publish the form in PDF or in XDP format.
When you publish the form in PDF, information such as
images and schemas is embedded in the form, and no external files
are copied to the publish folder.
When you publish the form in XDP format, the links to externally
referenced files are modified to be a relative path. The relative
path lets you have one location for images that multiple forms can
reference without having to have multiple copies of the images.
If the externally linked files are not contained in a folder
below the shared or web folder, the files are copied to the publish
folder and the links in the XDP file are adjusted to reflect the
new absolute path location of the files.
When publishing a form to the LiveCycle repository, all external
files are copied to the web folder.

(Optional) To change the file type, select a new file type

Before you publish a form to a repository, you can optionally
specify additional save options.
