ABOUT THIS VERSION OF FORM AF724
This is the flat (non-interactive) version of form AF724. It can be filled out and saved in Reader 11 and later. To fill out this form, click Tools > Fill & Sign (or
Comment) > Add Text, then click anywhere on page and start typing. You can easily encrypt this version of form AF724, add stamps and/or watermarks,
manipulate (add, delete, extract, split, reorder, and/or rotate) pages -- online, just by a click of button (see the section "Helpful Online Conversions" below).
ABOUT THE VERSION OF FORM AF724 POSTED ON U.S. AIR FORCE FORMS WEBSITE
File creation date: 01-12-2016. File extension: PDF. File structure: Dynamic XFA interactive. Number of fields: 80. Number of pages: 2. The file is encrypted
by an owner (restrictions) password. There is no open (user) password.
There are two major issues:
Issue 1: Form AF724 posted on U.S. Air Force Forms Website is reader extended by Acrobat in violation of EULA.
The creator of form AF724 enabled Reader Extensions (RE) by using Acrobat 11 -- apparently, in an unintentional violation of Adobe Acrobat EULA (End
User License Agreement) 500 limit. Since form AF724 is posted on a government Website for the purposes to be filled out and returned to the government, the
form is distributed to more than 500 recipients and the number of returned forms (including hard copies) exceeds the Acrobat (11 and earlier) 500 limit. Since
users of form AF724 get access to features enabled in violation of Acrobat EULA, the users may be in violation of Reader EULA. Due to the 500 limit, using
Acrobat 11 or earlier to enable RE is not a solution for a government agency. An appropriate Adobe product is either Acrobat DC or LiveCycle RE (LCRE),
which is thousands times more expensive than Acrobat (to use LCRE, IRS, for example, paid to Adobe millions of dollars). There is no 500 limit in Acrobat
DC EULA. The creator of form AF724 was probably unaware of both the 500 limit of Acrobat 11 and the advantage of using Acrobat DC.
Issue 2: Form AF724 posted on U.S. Air Force Forms Website is a non-PDF form, despite the PDF extension.
The creator of form AF724 used Adobe LiveCycle Designer (LCD) technology (instead of Acrobat technology), and thus created (apparently, unintentionally)
a dynamic XFA form AF724, which is a non-PDF form, despite the PDF extension (a file type is not the same as a file extension). At first glance, this dynamic
XFA form AF724 seems no different than a normal PDF Acrobat form (Acroform): same PDF extension, same appearance, seemingly same functionality.
However, since this dynamic XFA form AF724 was created by a different technological method, it has a different structure, different functionality, and cannot
be manipulated in the same way as a normal PDF Acrobat form. In particular, this dynamic XFA form AF724 cannot be saved in Reader without using RE
(enabled by the creator in violation of Acrobat EULA, as shown above), it cannot be optimized for fast web viewing, it cannot be made compliant with Section
508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. In contrast, if form AF724 were created as a PDF Acrobat form, it could be saved in Reader 11 and later without using
RE, it could be optimized for fast web viewing, and it could be made compliant with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. To be manipulated in the
same way as PDF forms, this dynamic XFA form AF724 must be converted to a PDF Acrobat form. Currently, there is no effective method to convert a
dynamic XFA form into a PDF Acrobat form by retaining fillable fields. It is only possible to convert this dynamic XFA form AF724 into a flat PDF file, and
then to convert the flat PDF file into an Acrobat form by re-creating all the fillable fields from the scratch. Finally, while in some forms the dynamic XFA
structure may have some advantages over the Acrobat form structure (such as the ability to expand a field size or produce a new page to accommodate a longer
text and the availability of image and barcode field type), these advantages are not usable for form AF724 (in which the number of pages and the size of each
field are fixed and there is neither image nor barcode field types). Thus, for the user, the dynamic XFA structure of form AF724 has multiple disadvantages
and no advantages against the normal PDF Acrobat form structure. However, using LCD technology may expedite the process of form creation (by creating
the form layout and adding form fields all at once). The creator of form AF724 either didn’t realize that the created form was a dynamic XFA form, or didn’t
realize that a dynamic XFA form is a non-PDF form (despite the PDF extension), or didn’t realize the disadvantages of the dynamic XFA structure for the
form AF724, or considered these disadvantages less important than the advantage to expedite the process of form creation. Anyway, using the LCD technology
to create form AF724 was a strategic mistake.
