Good morning,I presently use Reader Extension from the server to apply the extension to PDF's I create. It works fine.And I pay a yearly amount in order to do so.So let's say I create a form today, apply Reader Extension on it and post it, if in 6months time I stop purchasing the Extended reader, would that form still work or would I encounter an issue due to the fact that I no longer have a valid Reader Extended license (so-to-speak)?I want to know if me, not having a valid Reader extension (st...

Good morning everyone,I've just recently been introducing signature fields onto my forms and it seems to work better now then one I first tried this months ago.My question is that every time someone signs the form, it activates a sort of "Save As" feature to it.Let's say I need 3 signatures on this form. I'm ok if the first one generates a "Save As" copy and then emails that copy to the appropriate person. Now that person signs, he/she still get's that "Save As" window, is there anyway to allow ...
