I've designed some forms using Adobe designer but now when my clients fill them out they can't save then edit. They can only save as a pdf which locks in the changes. I need them to be able to save then go back and make edits and not have to start over each time.
I'd love for someone to help point me in the right direction as I'm stuck.
This is what I would LIKE to do with my form. I want the blank form to be on the web, once the user to completes it, be able to keep a completed static copy in PDF format. I further want the emailed copy to become a static PDF so no changes can be made after submittal.
This is what I have done that might be what you are trying to accomplish:
Created a form in livecysle designer, saved as Acrobat (static) PDF form, Published to Repository, Opened the file in Acrobat Pro (not livecycle designer) and enabled usage rights. To do this, Go to the Advanced option on the toolbar and select "Enable Usage Rights in Adobe Reader" which will require you to save the file again.
I am currently working in Adobe Designer 8. After the form has been filled out and I select the "Submit by Email" button, how do I get the attachment to show as a .pdf file instead of a .xml file?
