The Acrobat Forms Author Plug-in 3.5 Update enables Acrobat Exchange 3.01 users to create forms with the following new features:
-- Export Forms allows users to save a form and its data to a local hard drive. This feature is only available in Acrobat 3.0 and Acrobat Exchange VPP.
-- Dynamic Page Templates allow the creator to specify a first, last, and any number of middle pages to support form applications such as database publishing and high-end printing of bills and other forms.
-- Authoring Enhancements, such as the new layout grid, make it easier to align form fields. Other enhancements include support for multiple field selection and editing of field properties, which reduce creation and editing time.
-- Embedded PDF Graphics Support allows the user to embed PDF graphics within forms and then submit those graphics to a Web server.
-- Send Acrobat Forms data to a database. Acrobat Forms work with Web servers via standard Web server CGI scripts. In fact, a PDF form can replace HTML forms with little or no change to existing scripts. If your Web server software can connect to your corporate database, you should be able to write CGI scripts that take form data and populate your database and vice versa.
-- The Acrobat FDF Toolkit, which allows you to easily create and parse the Acrobat Forms Data Format (FDF), is available through Adobe Developer Relations on our Web site. It allows you to manipulate form information as a data tree, and extract and populate forms with graphical data. The FDF Toolkit comes as a C library with Perl and ActiveX(TM) wrappers on a variety of platforms.
Acrobat Reader 3.01 users should install the Acrobat Forms Fill-in Plug-in 3.5 Update to use the new forms features in PDF files that were created using the Forms Author Plug-in 3.5 Update.
