  • 1677172: LiveCycle Compatibility Warning: Form with signatures takes longer to open in Acrobat 8.x, 9.x than when opened in 7.x
    If the form was designed with Designer 7 or earlier and used scripting to lock fields after signing and if care was not taken with the handling of the lists of locked fields, the locking code could become very slow as the form was re-opened. As a work-around, Reader 8.1.3 and later implement a control in the <config>node in a template named <validateApprovalSignatures> which controls when signatures are automatically validated. This solution is not recommended for most cases. Instead, form authors should use MDP+ signatures and field locking as provided in Designer 8 and later.Root: Fixes issue found in 8

  • 1684847 LiveCycle Compatibility Warning: When executing saveXML() from within the Form context, the data description for the form is not observed
    If the script xfa.data.saveXML() is executed, it does not honor the main form data description.If a form contains an XFA Data Description it is possible for that form to nominate certain data elements to be excluded if their value is NULL. This exclusion of the null data nodes worked correctly in Acrobat 7.X, however a bug was introduced in Acrobat 8.0 where the saveXML() script function stopped respecting this special processing of NULL data nodes. This problem has been corrected in Acrobat 8.1.3 and Acrobat 9. Root: Fixes issue found in 8.0.
  • 1799353: LiveCycle Compatibility Warning: Resaving form in Designer 8.2 breaks scripting against instancemanager.count property:
    Resaving form in Designer 8.2 breaks scripting against instancemanager.count property. Saving an existing PDF form (that was saved in LiveCycle Designer 8.1) in Designer 8.2.1 can potentially cause migration or compatibility issues. See 1684847. Root: Fixes issue found in 8.1.2.

We hebben toch al de Reader 9
Adobe zegt zelf ook:
Adobe Reader

Adobe recommends Adobe Reader users update to Adobe Reader 9, available here:
http://www.adobe.com/go/getreader

Users with Adobe Reader 8.0 through 8.1.2, who can’t update to Adobe Reader 9, should update to Adobe Reader 8.1.3:
http://www.adobe.com/go/getreader
misschien een beetje vreemde vraag, maar waarom zou je niet naar 9 kunnen updaten en wel naar 8.1.3?
In omgevingen waar met roaming profiles wordt gewerkt, werkt 9 niet.
Bij versie 9 krijg je ongevraagd een aantal spullen extra die je niet wil hebben. (Adobe,com, Air en NOS). Die spullen laten zich maar moeizaam goed verwijderen. Het gebruik van diverse gedeelde mappen (o.a. op het bureaublad) is niet echt leuk.
yummy NOS waar kan ik het ophalen dan gebruik ik het voor me auto

adobe.com en air ken ik maar adobe nos niet

maar netjes van adobe om toch nog 8 te blijven updaten :)
Adobe NOS ken ik niet, maar heb je uberhaubt geprobeerd Adobe.com te verwijderen? Het is namelijk totaal niet moeizaam. Via Add/Remove software in je Config Panel is het binnen een minuut weg. Ik vermoed dat Air op dezelfde manier verwijderd kan worden (heb het laten staan).

Dat neemt natuurlijk niet weg dat het wel handig zou zijn geweest als ze bij de installatie netjes hadden gevraagd of je het uberhaubt wil installeren.

Bij de Nederlandse versie ben ik Adobe.com niet tegengekomen trouwens.
Sommige 3rd-party pakketten die Adobe nodig hebben werken niet zomaar met elke willekeurige versie.

Zo hebben wij bijvoorbeeld een pakket draaien dat per se versie 7.x van de Reader nodig heeft, met hogere (en ook lagere) versies treden er foutmeldingen op.
Niet voor linux... Dus het is goed om nog updates voor 8 te krijgen...
Idd, geef mij maar Foxit, ook lekker klein, lekker lokaal (sources vanuit 1 directory) daar door mobiel voor op de USB-Stick (U3) voor als er op de Server geen PDF-Reader/Viewer is geÔnstalleerd. Foxit doet precies wat ie moet doen, alleen dan wat lichter, en sneller, dus is hij eigenlijk beter. ;)
Nadeel is dat Foxit soms compleet de mist ingaat met het renderen van complexe zaken in PDF's, waar Adobe Reader het fluitend met succes afrond.

Ook heeft Foxit moeite met extreem grote PDF's. Bij een vorige werkgever hadden wij een pakket dat reports in PDF genereerde die dan weer als input voor een ander pakket diende. Die PDF's konden soms wel 9000-10000 pagina's bevatten. Foxit klapte er dan keihard uit, terwijl Adobe Reader keurig netjes bleef doordraaien, zelfs met normale snelheid.
samen met doPDF perfecte combinatie
(vind de bakker van foxit beetje 'heavy')
Was er niet een light versie die sneller is, van Adobe Reader ??
Ik vind Reader 9 een stuk sneller en overzichtelijker dan alle voorgaande versies. Dus zolang Reader 9 gratis is hoef ik geen alternatief meer.
ik gebruik nu sinds een lange tijd foxit pdf reader.
10x kleiner en werkt net zo goed.
adobe acrobat is mij veel te groot. en nestelt zich te veel in windows
foxit is slechts een exe file heerlijk
File Name AcrobatUpd813_all_incr.msp
File Size 38.4MB

En daarom gebruik ik dus nog steeds Foxit. Adobe mag de boel wel sneller maken, maar om een PDFje te lezen een dikke 40mb aan reut op mijn laptopje te gooien liever niet. En extra software mee installeren vind ik ook niet ok, ik wil een PDF lezer, niets meer, niets minder. Foxit blijft voor mij de voor de hand liggende keuze. Het is klein, snel en werkt met 99% van de PDFjes prima.
Adobe Reader 9 - Recentste versie
Downloadgegevens: 25.2MB

Tja.. Maar dan toch die 1% die hij niet kan lezen zorgt er dus voor dat je dan alsnog bijvoorbeeld Adobe Reader zult moeten gebruiken...

Hetzelfde probleem heb ik met internet browsers. Ik gebruik graag Google Chrome maar heb toch Internet Explorer "nodig" om de diverse Outlook webmail sites op een normale manier te kunnen gebruiken.
Vond het ook al raar, ben namelijk wel een foxit voorstander. Ik kan me wel voorstellen als je veel met PDF werkt en ook maakt, Adobe toch een stuk beter is.

Maar wat ik me niet kan voorstellen is waarom je een programma neemt van 33MB wat dus al lomp is als bijvoorbeeld FOXIT met 2.45MB zijn werk ook al doet. Dan is toch te verklaren dat het sloom wordt. Op me "oude" AMD XP 2400+ heb ik geen zin om meer dan 10 sec te wachten op een PDFje terwijl FOXIT dit binnen 4 sec doet

Want het is maar een reader, zo groot hoeft het niet te zijn! Nog mooier is bijv Sumatra PDF met 1.2 MB en opensource ;) ..
