LiveCycle Forms and ZipFiles issues

Level 2
Level 2

I've created about 15 fillable forms in LiveCycle ES2 that have extended rights (as they need to have savable text for users). We want to upload these forms to our website for users to download, and since the forms can take a while to open, I thought it best to Zip them. The problem, however, is that when I tested putting a form in a zip file and unzipped it, it no longer seems to have the ability to save text any longer.  It is ready strange.  In other words, it can be zipped, but not zipped with extended rights kept. Does anyone on this site have any suggestions to get around this issue? Thanks.

That is really strange. Zipping and unzipping of PDF forms doesn't affect their Usage Rights.

I just added few Rights enabled PDFs to a zip file, and decompressed them. They all working fine.
