What about including the history of the product? (talk) 22:29, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Anybody cares to provide something more than a marketing pitch? For example, how is this technology different/better that the standard HTML, Ajax, HTML + Flash? (talk) 10:52, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Yes, this entry is terrible. It's all marketing nonsense and doesn't really give much information about what the heck the services are or what they do. I'm tempted to start editing out the marketing-speak but until I have a better understanding of the technology and can add the real analysis I will hold off. patniemeyer (talk) 13:47, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Well, it's been two years now, and almost nothing useful is said about LiveCycle. From the university world, I know that it's a nightmare for admissions departments, since LiveCycle renders PDF useless for document management software. The best overview I've read on the subject is by Alexander Clark, Technolutions developer and CEO, but it's in a knowledgebase behind a login. I'll start by inserting a small section into the page, and perhaps it can grow from there. bendodge (talk) 18:06, 4 January 2017 (UTC)

PDF Error Messages? How about discussing the observation that LiveCycle is responsible for creating PDFs that are utterly unreadable in anything but Adobe products, so that when one of these proprietary PDFs is opened in anything else the PDF viewer only displays:

Please wait...

If this message is not eventually replaced by the proper contents of the document, your PDF viewer may not be able to display this type of document.

This is important because it seems that many government agencies (at least at the state and local level) produce lots of documents that are broken in this manner, and not everyone wants to, should, or is even able to install Adobe Reader/Acrobat, effectively locking these people out of these important public documents. Naively speaking, it seems doing this sort of defeats the purpose of distributing documents in PDF format, no? (talk) 02:27, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
