Hi,



I have created several forms with Adobe designer on windows they work fine, but when a user wants to download them and complete them on Mac I have problems thay cannot open the form.



How can I make my form compatible? Can I still use Formcalc or Javascript?

Do you know the program being used to view the PDFs? Apple's standard PDF viewer "Preview" will not handle the interactive or dynamic forms. You must use Adobe's software.

I have confirmed that Adobe's Reader for Mac handles interactive and dynamic forms well. Make sure the software is updated to the latest to be sure (9.3.3).

Adobe's Reader for MAC is a separate download?

Yes - you must download from Adobe's site here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/

I downloaded the Mac version and the form still didn't seem to work. Have you accessed an interactive form using a Mac?

Did this ever get resolved? I'm working on developing a form and I am having problems with folks not being able to save the form.

They end up printing and faxing the form instead of emailing it back.
