Good morning,A client just flagged a form this morning, that once data is filled into mandatory fields and he tries to save it, adobe crashes.I tried it too, and I get that as well, first time ever I've seen this.On my side, it does however try to debug it using Microsoft visual studio (the system asked me which debugger to use, but I don't have them) but on that screen, I can see the following error message:an unhandled microsoft .net framework exception occurred in acrobat.exe [10052]Anyone kn...

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,I created a form a while back and recently, a user from my team tried it and wasn't very please with the experience saying that it was very annoying to have the form scroll back (jump or sling shot) back to the top of the form or back to a field where the mouse cursor was focused in.so lets say on my 1st page of 5, I put the mouse cursor into the Application name field and just decide to scroll down a bit, it will sling-shot right back to that field/page. so on a 5-8 page form, I wi...

Good afternoon everyone,I have a form that asks a few questions and based on the answers, i get a corresponding car/make to it.At the end of my form i would like to show the results (via a table).So what i was thinking is that behind every question that is answered, i have a piece of code that would add the corresponding car and make (in one line, ex: nissan tittan) and this would occur throughout the form about a dozen times.Each time adding a dynamic line to my table so as to make this look li...

question about signature saving

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 ...

Hi,I don't know how to localise the messageBox, I would have thought you could, but you do have more control when you use a custom dialog, something like;function dialog() var dialogDescriptor = description: name: "dailog1", elements: [ type: "static_text", name: "Something in french", }, type: "ok_cancel", ok_name: "Oui", cancel_name: "Non", var dialogObject = execDialog: function() { return app.execDialog(dialogDescriptor); }, return dialogObject; var d = dialog(); var result = d.execDialog();...

each of your employees will require their own pfx/p12c/entrust key. if you use unverified certs (ie. you created them yourself or they are not from a trusted CA) then when another user opens up that file on another machine, they may find the sig is unverified since they cant' verify the sig.when they click on the sig field, it'll bring up a dialog box to select the key and require them to enter the pwd.After that, i think reader remembers and it'll show the last sig file used in the drop down by...

What do you mean by change the list items available? Are you wanting a radio button that sits on the master page and thus shows up on each page of a document? Or are you wanting a radio button that will change the list of available choices on subsequent pages. i.e., if I chose option 1 on the first page, I'm presented with the same set of options minus option 1 on a second page?
