I have a dynamic form that goes through a workflow. When the workflow is done and the form is complete, I need the final user to "finalize" it by printing it to PDF so that the dynamic properties are removed. We store these PDFs in a system that can't work with dynamic PDFs.
When I place a print button, clicking the button does bring up a print dialog box. However, when I choose "Adobe PDF" as my printer, it says "Access denied." When I try to print that version by clicking File/Print/Adobe PDF it will print a static PDF.
When I have a version of the form without a print button, I can also click File/Print/Adobe PDF to print a static PDF.
Is there a way to program a button to allow users to click, get a print dialog box, and print to PDF?
I would prefer a button that gets the user to the point of choosing Adobe PDF as the printer over displaying a message box to users telling them how to print to PDF using File/Print/Adobe PDF, but that's the only workaround I can think of.
