Import/Export extension and form variables


Level 4


I'm using a form that uses form variables to save some infomation about the previous action performed in the document.

It works fine, but in order for this information to be saved on the PDF (if the PDF is closed) and then available when it is opened again i have to have the import / export extension on the form.

Is there any other way to do this?

Nope, in order to save form data using Reader you will need to apply Reader Extensions either using the LiveCycle server software of Acrobat

That was not my question.

In order to save data i have to apply the form_fill_in extension i know.

But i'm using form variables, that allow me to save text values without them being in the DOM tree.

This works, but i can only get this to work if i apply the import/export extension and i don't belive this is the most correct way to go.

Nevermind. Found the problem and its unrelated.
