I'm just getting my feet wet with Adobe form designer. I thought I'd been doing a pretty good job until it came to my attention that the interactive form I created can not be saved by the person filling it out. Feel free to view it here: http://www.townofaberdeen.net/volunteer%20application.pdf
I did not realize this problem because my computer is set up with adobe professional(7.0), so when I view it on my computer I can save it as a copy.
I am using version 7.0 professional adobe designer to make the forms.
Is there ANY way that the average adobe viewer who has reader versions 6.0 and up and who do not have the benefit of Adobe professional can save their information that they input into the form, and then email the entire form to us with their entries? We had planned on using these forms for many applications around the fire department, but I need to be able to make them accessible to all users, so that they can save the information in the form to email back.
Thank you, I guess I'll look into an upgrade or something? Just to be clear/confirm, if we upgraded to 8.0, if I make the form, the user can fill out the form online with their data, and then Save the form and their data and email it to us?
Even with extended reader rights, the form is coming back not in the form format, but as line text such as: <name> John Doe. Our service department who will be opening these documents has Acrobat Reader only. The distribution number you mentioned will be too low for us also. Where did you find the distribution number of 500? It is not in the Help section.
You have create a custom 'Submit' button and specify optional information, parameters. See 'To insert a button and select the "Control Type" "Submit" and then complete the "Submit" tab that becomes visible on the 'Object' tab. More information is in the 'Scripting Reference' in LiveCycle Designer's help under 'Button properties in the Submit tab'.
