May i know how can I protect a completed form with from others?

For example:

Form scripts and functions cannot be viewed/copied by a third party accessing my form with livecycle designer or other software?

Please share and help me!

You can put a password on the form that you need to enter to open it (in Designer).

Hello Paul,

I've done through the following steps:

-> Open the form and select "Edit Form in Adobe LiveCycle Designer"

->File -> Form Properties -> PDF Security -> Checked "Require a password to open the document" -> Save Form

-> Reopen form

When i reopen the form, it prompts me to enter a password to enter the form.

The User can enter the form and input data but I want to protect the form when a user tries to enter into LiveCycle Designer.

Did i do the steps wrongly? Please help me? Many Thanks...

In that dialog you must choose the changes that you will allow - Commenting, Filling in Form Fields, and signing. When I tried this I was NOT prompted for the password when I opened the PDF in Acrobat/Reader but I was asked for it when I tried to open it in Designer.

The ultimate experience is back.
