Retaining legacy appearance of PDF Forms in LiveCycle

In LiveCycle, PDF forms rendered with the assistance of Forms, Output, or Form Data Integration (FDI) services have the appearance that is similar to PDF forms in Acrobat X. 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 services, 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.
  1. In the Components view, drill down to Forms > Active Services > FormsService:1.1.

  2. Right click FormsService1.1 and select Edit Service Configuration.

  3. On the Configuration Settings dialog, edit the Appearance Compatibility Mode option to set the version of Acrobat whose appearance mode is to be configured.

  4. Click OK to complete the setting.
