Problem with people opening my PDF Form

Avatar

Hi,



I have people who can't open my Form PDF file - they get an error message. Some of them have version 5, 6 or 7 of Acrobat.



Any suggestions? I have enabled Usage Rights in Acrobat and Saved.

Hi,

Have you checked what version of pdf you are saving your form as? If you save as version 8, you can't open the form in Reader 7.

Hi,



you can inform your clients with a message when opening your form with an (too) old pdf reader version, to avoid problems with using the form.



put following script into the initialize event of the first page of your form!



if (typeof(app.viewerVersion) != "undefined")

if (app.viewerVersion < 8.0)

{

app.alert({cMsg:"ATTENTION:\rThis file requires Adobe Reader 8.0 or newer!",cTitle: "ATTENTION:", nIcon: 1, nType: 0} )

}
