Why use Designer if you already have form creation and editing tools in Acrobat?
The answer is that, unlike Acrobat, with Designer you can create forms from scratch. Think of it as a page layout program for forms. This means that, besides the tools to create form elements, Designer also enables you to import graphics (like your company's logo), create blank pages, add text boxes, and more.
Designer also comes with many predesigned templates for most common form tasks. And you can create and save your own forms as well.
There are other advantages of using Designer as part of a LiveCycle enterprise solution, but we concentrate on what makes Designer a good addition to Adobe Creative Suite. If you want to learn more about LiveCycle products, visit http://www.adobe.com/products/server/main.html.
