Changing the name of the form when attached to an email

Good Day All;

I am wondering if there is a way to change the name of an attachment when the email button is clicked.

Let me explain.

I have designed a form that will be emailed from one are to another and when the email button is clicked the email attachment is named (example)  “_150s2140t32f8b0iu.pdf”. Of course this is a meaningless name. I would like to somehow change this to better represent the name of the form.

Thanks for any suggestions

Thanks

Chomp

Hi Chomp,

It sounds like you are clicking the email button when in Preview in LC Designer. When the form is being Previewed it is given a temporary name. If the form is opened in Acrobat directly, does the email button attached the form with the proper/full name?

If you want the form to be given a named based on user's inputted data, then you will need a trusted function (.js file) on every user's computer. See this discussion: http://forums.adobe.com/message/2266799#2266799.

Niall, you are absolutely correct… My bad. I was using preview. When I used Acrobat, the name of the form was correct…

Thank you….
