Converting Acrobat forms that contain scripts

One of the first steps in converting a form from Acrobat to Designer is to determine how much of the Acrobat scripting is supported by Designer and how much you must convert.

In general, you should convert all Acrobat scripting to an equivalent in Designer. Designer scripting takes full advantage of the highly structured nature of Designer forms, as well as useful forms-specific functionality, to make designing and implementing your forms solution faster and easier.

The Acrobat scripting you should retain include those that deal with the form’s environment and peripheral operations, such as adding attachments or multimedia, performing searches, or creating reports and handling document metadata.
