When importing an existing form in .DOC format, Adobe LiveCycle produces the following error message, "The document contains missing fonts. Import after installing the missing fonts or with 'Ignore Missing Fonts' checkbox checked." If you select "Ignore missing Fonts", then the Header and Footnotes are missing.
With LiveCycle Designer 8.2 you will still receive the error but when you select "Ignore Missing Fonts" the header and footers will still be created.
You can copy and paste the Microsoft Word Header and Footer into the LiveCycle Designer file after conversion.
