How can I compress a large fillable form with extended rights?


Level 2


I have about 15 fillable PDF s that I created in LiveCycle ES2. One form is 37,616 kb and takes forever to download from the web. I attempted to zip the file, but when I tested it, text could no longer be saved after it was unzipped (the forms have extended rights as users need to be able to enter in a save text they enter into it). Does anyone have any suggestions re: how I might be able to compress my PDF file, while still being able to maintain the ability to enable savable text (extended rights)?

Just tried it here and it worked fine ....are you sure you zipped the Reader Extended version of the form?

Thanks. I'm glad that it works for another Adobe user. I will recheck that it was the extended rights version, though I'm pretty sure it was.
