Distribute Form breaks the email submit button


Level 2

I have a form created using LiveCycle Designer 10.0.2 which uses an email submit button.  I used the File > Distribute Form menu to create a distributable version of the form and also to enable data filled into the PDF form to be saved by the recipients.  The problem is that once the distributable file has been created, clicking the email submit button within the PDF bypasses any scripting that I have attached to the email submit button, it does not load my email client and sends the email directly using the email address specified in the File > Distribute Form preferences.  The behaviour is correct when run from Adobe Acrobat, i.e it runs my scripts to display some instructions and then loads the email client and attaches the completed PDF, but this is of course useless for the recipients of the form.   I have found a workaround in that I can open the file in Acrobat Pro and do a save as but any other suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks, Paul
