I am trying to combine a pdf converted from Word with a pdf fillable form that was created for me by a professional. When I attempt to combine the two files I get the following message:
"Acrobat does not support the conversion of one or more of your files to PDF. Please remove these files or go to Settings and choose the PDF Portfolio option"
I do not want a portfolio. I just need to combine the 2 files. I'm using the "Combine Files" function in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. Can someone help?
The error message is pretty clear. You can't merge those files to a single PDF, unless you find and solve the issue (if possible).
Is any of the files secured, digitally signed, or was created using LiveCycle Designer?
My message was pretty clear . One of the files was created by a professional. How do I know if it was secured, digitally signed, or created using LiveCycle Designer?
Open the file.
Does it say "(SECURED)" in the title? If so, it's secured.
Look under the Signature panel on the left. Is there a signature there? If so, it's digitally signed.
Look under File - Properties - Description. Does it say "Adobe LiveCycle Designer" under PDF Producer? If so, it's an LCD form.
Thank you. Yes, it was created with LiveCycle Designer. Does that mean I'm out of luck?
Yes... If you want to be able to merge it with a non-LCD file you have to convert it to a "normal" PDF, which means that if it has any kind of form fields or scripts you'll have to re-do all of them from scratch.
May be that you can combine the files with LiveCycle Designer.
I need to combine a lot of files signed. Could you help me? How can I do?
You can't. Only as a Portfolio.
For the PDF that's giving you problems. Print and save as a PDF, the form fields go away but your entries will not.
THANK YOU! Finally, a solution to this plaguing problem.
