    Might be a noob question again:

    Is it possible to save a half filled out PDF as still fillable?

    Do you need special rights to do so?

    Yes you can .... if you are using Reader you need to Reader extend it to allow for local saving.

    This may be of some help, it is possible to add some of the reader extended functionality by opening and saving the LiveCycle form in Acrobat, all reader extended functionality is not added but it does allow a user with only Reader to save a half filled form

    See JasonCPs reply to "Can live cycle create a PDF form that is saved on a desktop and filled out simply to be attached to "

    Another option you can try is that if the document has been Reader Extended and the user saves the document, force them to save it as a Static pdf. Then they should not be able to change the form.

    Also, could you tell me if your script would work with a fillable form that uses pagination.  We have a fillable form that the pages fillable are dependent on one of the radio buttons selected at the beginning of the form.   Once a selection is made the form is refreshed and the pages are chosen based on that radio button selection.  After the form has been filled out we would like to save the completed form as a non-fillable form.   However, everything we've tried so far to save the form as non-fillable continues to break the pagination.   When we open the saved form it continues to display all the pages of that form regardless of the selection made at the time the form was fillable.  Perhaps this is altogether another issue.  Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Mr. Guerrette -

     

    I saw your post about a script you have that locks "fields" within a form.  Is it possible for you to send me your example?  Second, can your script be modified so that it only "locks" certain fields and not others?  I am trying to send out a pdf with some "prefilled" information that I don't want changed, but allow the end user to fill out the remaining fields.  But my prefilled information would change case-by-case. Also, will this script run with adobe reader?  Or just Acrobat? or Acrobat pro?

     

    Your response would be greatly appreciated.

     

    Thanks!

    The script expects you to pass a subform and it will lock everything inside of that subform. In most cases people will pass the root node of the form and then everything gets locked down. If it makes sense to put all the fields you want to lock into a subform then this sample will be useful; otherwise, you may end up having to lock then one by one.

     

    It looks like the attachment issue have been fixed on the forum so I will attach it here.

    Paul,

    Thank you for sending me your script, it worked perfectly!!!. However, I was wondering if the email purchase order button could be excluded from the lock all fields function. My purpose is to lock all fields prior to emailing my purchase order. But, after locking the form, the email purchase order button is also locked.  Is there a way to exclude this button from being locked?

     

    Thanks again, and look forward to your reply.

     

    Jay

    In the case statement that locks the field , you can do a further test for an object by that name and exclude it from being locked.

     

    Make sense?

    Good Afternoon,

         I have been reading all the post pertaining to saving a fillable form once filled in by employee to a standard pdf file. It appears you have written some could which would do this. Is it possible to obtain this code. I designed the form in Designer 7.0 .

     

         Thanks,

    Hi Paul

    The topic of this thread is of interest to me as well. I have a form that we are using to create a document that we want to save as a uneditable pdf that we will send to our customers. What I would like to be able to do is to create the form in lifecycle, with a "button" on it for the person to lock the form with the data in it, and save the document as a new pdf.

    Hi Paul,

    I am a newbie to LifeCycle Designer 8 but have had great success creating fillable forms that can be accessed through our intranet.  Once the form has been completed by people using Adobe Reader I would like them to submit the form by email but I do not want the recipients to be able to change the information submitted on the form. (I have also chosen the Acrobat 8 Pro option "Enable User Rights in Adobe Reader")

     

    Do you have a script that would help me prevent the recipients from changing the submitted information?  If so please send to: pmiles@cloverdalepaint.com

    thanks, Peter

    Simply add code to the script to check for the button name and when you get it do not lock it.

     

    This means that the button will always be available.
