In LiveCycle, PDF forms rendered with the assistance of
Forms, Output, or Form Data Integration (FDI) services have the
appearance that is close to PDF forms in Acrobat XI. However, if
you are upgrading from the previous version of LiveCycle, and would
like to retain the older appearance of PDF forms, you can set a
service-level configuration option for the Forms, Output, and FDI
services. For the Forms, Output, or FDI service, when the value
of this option (Appearance Compatibility Mode) is set to 9,
all PDF forms rendered using the service appear in the legacy appearance.
Any other value set for this option results in generated PDF forms appearing
with the look and feel enabled by LiveCycle.
This option can be set from the LiveCycle Administration Console
(see the Managing
Services topic in the LiveCycle Administration Help)
or from Workbench (see Workbench Help).
