I have a number of Reader Extended forms that are used by clients. In some cases, it would be useful to send a form to a third party without them being able to further edit the contents of the form. This is why I am wondering whether it is possible to save a non-Reader Extended copy of a form directly from Adobe Reader.
You cannot effect the rights that were placed on the form from Reader. You can use the Reader Extensions Server to remove or change rights on a PDF. Even if you remove the Reader Extensions rights then the form is still editable, they simply will not be able to save it locally. Can you explain what you mean by editable file ...maybe there is another way?
Hi Paul and thank you for your answer.
My aim is simply to create a version of the PDF form in which the content of fields cannot be changed (i.e. a static/flat version). Unfortunately I have no access to server products with the particular product I am developing.
Yesterday I experimented with setting the read only property of all fields on the form and saving it. For som reason, however, when I save the form open it again, the fields are no longer read only.
