I created a form containing fillable fields using LiveCycle Designer 8. The security setting is "none". I enabled usage rights using Acrobat 8 Pro. The form works fine. I saved the form to a memory stick and tried to open it on another computer running Reader 8. Form works fine. Moved the memory stick to a third computer running Reader 8, and the form won't work. In the form properties, under security, filling the fields is disabled. Tabbing between fields and radio buttons do not work properly. Any help is appreciated!!!!!!!!!
You have to be careful when saving with a full version of Acrobat, as it will remove the Extended Rights. You should be copying the file through the OS and not by using Acrobat.
I don't think that's his scenario.
He created the file with Acrobat 8 Pro on machine A
Opened the file with the Reader on machine B and saved some form changes
Opened the file with the Reader on machine C and couldn't edit any form fields.
Is this correct? Have you tried reversing the sequence (open it on machine C and then machine B)? That might isolate any differences in their versions of the reader.
Thanks for your reply. I am confused however because I am not copying the file. I am opening the same file from machine to machine to machine on one memory stick. When I bring the same file back to first two machines, usage rights are still there, the file works properly.
I think you are on to something! I reversed the order and the form seems to be working fine. Any ideas on what might cause this so I don't repeat it?
