Save method for digital signatures


Level 3

Hi - I have several thousand forms all set up for digital signatures, which I use for locking down the form fields (render read-only). This works fine. The problem I have is that when a user digitally signs the form, they automatically get asked to Save As - with a default location on the local machine. Can this be changed to allow the user to simply save and overwrite the form in its original location. Of course there is a danger with doing this, but users with document/case management systems do not necessaritly know where to save the document, so basically they want to open up the form from their CMS/DMS, complete it, digitally sign it and simply save (automatically back in the location they launched it from.

Does anyone know where I can even look - I have trawled the registry, the digital signature settings, etc, but no luck.

Are you using Reader / Acrobat to sign these forms? I believe this is a feature of Acrobat's signature handling in general than a specific feature of XFA forms.

Hi - these are all reader extended through Livecycle ES Reader extensions and are signed by users in Reader. What I am asking is if anyone has an idea where this behaviour is declared, so that I can change it.
