'Flattening' a dynamic form

Avatar

13-01-2009

I have a dynamic xml form that will be emailed to clients. I want the dynamic aspects of the form to be disabled so that when you open it you view the content and that is all (printing is OK).



Currently I am unable to reorder pages, delete pages, add pages etc when I open the pdf.



Is there a way to flatten the completed dynamic pdf into a static pdf that can them be edited like other static pdfs?

Are you expecting to have the clients interact with the form (i.e. change fields, add data ato the form)?



You cannot do those operations because it is an interactive form and needs to maintain its structure accordingly. If you were allowed to do those things all coding in the form would break.

Hi Paul,



I do not want them to interact. As I noted:'I want the dynamic aspects of the form to be disabled'.



How to disable?

Helge is correct or if you have LiveCycle Server you can flatten the file on the server.
