Infopath updating the site content type failed

Adobe Digital Editions has improved dramatically, as well and is available for all mobile and desktop platforms.] That is not the case with PDF where many people expect that a PDF will work on any device on any reader and are shocked when it doesn’t.

While earlier version of Acrobat had flash player included, that is no longer the case and even it were, SWF files won’t play on mobile devices.Pop up menus; slideshows; videos (embedded and streamed), animations and scrolling content are among the top features I see people trying to squeeze into a PDF.But complicated forms with calculations, custom fonts, email submissions of only part of the form are also popular requests.Now, don’t get me wrong…I love pushing the envelope, but there’s a point where you’re just wasting your time and effort and rather than give users the same response over and over again, along with the fact that I haven’t written a blog post in a while, I figured I’d climb up on my soapbox and shout this from my own little mountaintop.Don’t be surprised if you see links to this post show up on the forums.Those things just don’t work (some of them, like fonts for text fields and calculations in forms can be added in Acrobat, but that’s not issue here.

If having it work in a browser is the goal, why use PDF when an HTML form is so easy to add to a website?

Alternatively, Google Forms are terrific for that type of thing and way easier to create than a form in In Design.
