ES2 Submit Email

Avatar

Level 1

I have a form on which I've added a submit to object. The intent is to open an email and attach the PDF form. This button and form worked fine prior to the release of Acrobat X. Now I receive the security error below, and it doesn't open Outlook at all.

Anyone experiencing the same artifacts?

Or has anyone successfully created a working PDF that includes a button with a "mailto" in ES2?

Yes, I have. It works on both static and dynamic forms. I just drag a button from the object library, select "submit" as the button type.  On the submit tab, I choose pdf from the menu under Submit as and then type "mailto:" in the url. I then Reader enable my form in Acrobat Pro X, save it again, and when you open it and click the button, it automatically opens whatever email program you have open on your computer.

I hope this helps.

Yes, that's the process I've used in the past, but has stopped working with Acrobat X and Reader X. It seems that others are having related issues:
