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).

Hi Niall,

Here's the thing.  My form has multiple signatures and multiple Form Collections.

The first signature locks the Master Page objects.  The subsequent signatures locks lower Form Collections on the form.

So, when the first signature is applied, the Form Collection associated to it is locked (this includes the Master Page objects).


However, when the lower sections are filled out, which ultimately forces the form to grow to multiple pages) the Master Page objects become unlocked when the form expands.

I'm using Designer 8.2 and Acrobat 9.3.2.

Any thoughts, suggestions?

Thanks so much!
