Automated Forms Conversion Service receives improvements on an ongoing basis. To stay up to date with the most recent developments, visit this page regularly. This page provides you with information about:
Improvements in organizing form content into panels and generating titles for panels while converting a source form to an adaptive form.
Added support to convert colored PDF forms to adaptive forms.
Improvements in the automated conversion of text, form, and choice group fields to corresponding adaptive form components.
Automatically detect logical sections in a form
By default, the service creates a separate top-level panel for each page of a PDF form. Now, you can use the Auto-detect logical sections option to drop page level panels (page number-based panels) and create only logical panels. It also clubs the fields which do not belong to any section with preceding logical section and fields of a logical section spread across two adjacent pages into a single logical section. For example, if some fields of a logical section are at the end of page one and some are in the starting of page two, all such fields are clubbed into a single logical section.
Improvements in list detection
The service is now more efficient in detecting bulleted and numbered lists.
