I have a form that has several objects on the Master Page. They repeat (as a header) on subsequent pages when the forms grows. I've added these objects to a Form Collection. The objects lock when the correct signature is applied.
However, once the form exceeds one page and the objects within the header carry over to subsequent pages, the locking is removed from these objects (on all pages).
Does anyone know how to maintain the locking feature on objects within the Master Page after the form grows to multiple pages? Or is this just how Designer works?
This doesn't happen to objects on the form that reside within the Design View (and it doesn't seem to matter whether the objects are set to "Normal" or "Global" Binding).
I see the issue now. It seems that when Acrobat/Reader lays out the new page (for the overflow), it renders the objects on the Master Page as per their default settings.
The only thing I can think of is to set the master page objects as read only and have objects on page1 with global bindings to input the header details. On signing the first signature, these fields are then hidden.
That's not what I am experiencing here. What version of LC Designer are you using? Also what version of Acrobat?
Here is an example, where I have added a date field to the master page. I have added this to the collection and on signing it is locked, as expected. I also added a comments object that expands, so that I can flow the form onto a second page. Again both instances of the date object on the master page are locked on signing.
