Good morning all Guru's

I created a form in life cycle designer. Entry form with different field that need to be send. Then publish the form as PDF, and I can open the form and use in Adobe.

However when done I do NOT want people to save the form with the added data. The form must ONLY be allowed to be SAVED AS. Therefore I want the master form to always remain with blank fields. Currenly when I close the pdf it ask me if I would like to save and if I then save the form all the fields data entered is being saved with the form.

How would I accomplish this. Sorry if it is a noob question, yes I am new to Adobe. Please be kind.

Regards

Johan

This probably isn't the answer you're looking for, but the only solution that occurs to me is to mark the file as read-only in Windows. (Right-click, select Properties from the menu, select the Read-only checkbox, then click OK.) That would prevent Acrobat from overwriting it with the filled-in version. I'm not aware of anything within Acrobat itself to accomplish this, but maybe someone else has a better idea.
