This Help topic describes how to save a form customized with form pages and does not apply to forms customized with form regions. With form regions, you save the layout of the form region by clicking Form Region, and then Save Form Region. The form region layout file is saved with an .ofs extension. Then you must create a form region manifest XML file and register the form region in the Windows registry. Learn more in How to: Create a Form Region.
