Multiple Drop-Down selections by email submission

Avatar

Level 1

I have looked over several forums and examples throughout the internet on how to setup my PDF form to have a selection of either:

A: Two seperate email submit buttons (that will go to a different email based on selection)

or

B: A drop down menu with the email selections which will send to the specified designation after hitting the "Submit" button.

I feel I'm right on top of it, but I can not seem to get through. If this has been covered in the Adobe Forums already, can someone direct me to that thread? If not, I'll be happy to work one-on-one with someone to review my PDF form.


Thanks in advance,

It is already setup to send PDF. If you want to change the submit format you highligh the "real" email submit button and look at the submit tab on the Object palette. There is a Submit As field that defines what format you want to submit. Note that if you are using Reader then you must Reader Extend the document to allow PDF submissions.

Open the PDF in designer ...if it is Reader Extended you will get a dialog saying that they will be removed if you continue.

Open the file in Acrobat. Under the Advanced menu choose "Extend Features in Adobe Reader". A wizard will start. Run through the wizard, when complete save the file as a different file name (I also add a _RE at the end so that I know it has been Reader Extended....filename_RE.pdf). Distributed the new file.
