Q. Can I total values in a table, e.g. one amount in a number field per row?
To cover a related question, this approach should work for check boxes in a table which gave been allocated values
Assuming you have a table with repeating rows in place
You then need to open the script editor panel via the Window menu.
Select the field that will act as the grand total – in my example, this is called Total.
In the Object panel set value to Calculated Read Only
Set Value to Calculated Read Only
In the Script Editor panel choose calculate
Set the Language to FormCalc
Then in the panel add the following code – Use your table name, row name and field name. Read [*] as saying “for each instance of the object” “This” refers to the currently selected object, in this case the grand total field.
Part 1. Using a button to add rows to a table – without writing code
Part 2. Using check-boxes to control the display of hidden fields on the form
A very quickly prepared tutorial to answer some Adobe LiveCycle questions.
i) volume levels will vary due to Windows 8/Captivate issues, Please adjust volume to suit
ii) I did this without notes or a script – you will hear the gears turning in my head as I roughly narrate this (the “umm” and “arr” ratio is too high). A scripted narration is always better! In this case it was a false economy not to do one….
The good news is that it is an enhanced version of Acrobat X.
The features that stood out for me were
integration with Echo Sign for digital signing
shift to Form Central for forms (LiveCycle Designer is now available as a separate product)
improved SharePoint integration
custom tool panels
enhanced export options
Motivated by Richard’s presentation, I have just created a virtual machine with Acrobat XI trial to explore the possibilities.
I’d recommend the user group to all levels of Adobe product users (that this was my first user group meeting for over 12 months is not a reflection on the quality of topics covered). There is a mailing list at the B.A.U.G. Brisbane Adobe User Group site
This topic came up on a recent Acrobat session, raised by people discussing cutting and pasting signatures into documents to simulate signing. Which led to a discussion on digital signatures and Acrobat and a run through of the process (using a self signed certificate).
About 10 days ago I moved to the Adobe E-Learning Suite 2.5 using the subscription model. After carefully reviewing the licence agreement, I determined I would be able install on my main desktop PC and the laptop provided both were not to used at once (there is only one of me- so this is unlikely)
So I signed up, downloaded and installed on PC and laptop.
All good and ready for me to do a couple of projects with Dreamweaver and Captivate and to prepare for the Acrobat X and Captivate 5.5 exams.
