Submit as PDF




I read some posts on the forum, regarding the "Submit as PDF" which said that, for this option to work, either the form need to be Rights Extended or the end-user should use Acrobat. I just want to make sure whether there are any updates to the feature.

My end users has Adobe Reader 8.x version installed. I tried to use the "Submit as PDF" option from Reader, and nothing is getting submitted.

Can anyone please confirm with Adobe Reader 9.x, can we submit a form as PDF or not.

And also is there any way of getting the "Submit as PDF" functionality without going for Acrobat and Rights Management.

Thanks in advance





Hi Sivajee,

1) To get the form to submit as PDF you have to make the Control Type in your Object Pallete - Field Tab - Submit then goto the Submit Tab and choose PDF in the Submit As dropdown.

2) Save your form and reopen with Reader, Advance menu and select Extend Features in Adobe Reader. Save it up and deliver to your client.

This is what I have figured out through reading. Let me know if how it works out.
