I want to create a form that an adobe reader user can open and save a copy as a pdf with the data in the form. I know that requires reader extensions - what i can't seem to figure out is if I already have this included and how to do it. I have LiveCycle Designer ES 8.2 - which is the download I end up at when searching LC with reader extensions.

Does anyone have instructions on how to do this or know whether that functionality is available in the version I'm running?

You can add the Reader Extesnion right to save the form with data locally in two different ways.

1. In Acrobat Pro open the form and under the Advanced/Extend Features in Adobe Reader will walk you through a wizard. Once the wixard is finished, save the file and use that one. This technique is limited to 500 users by licence.

2. LiveCycle Reader Extensions Server has a User Interface that allwos you to pick the rights you want. There are no luser imitations to this option.

If you do not have either, option 1 is a lot simpler. You can download a trial copy of Acrobat Pro and try it.

Open your PDF in Acrobat X.

In the newer version of Acrobat, you use File>Save As>Reader Extended PDF>Enable Additional Features.

Good Luck,

What do you do when you are editing the form in Acrobat Pro X and there is no Advanced menu?

Thank you so much. I felt like I was going in circles.
