Hi, I have just made my first PDF with an editable text field and was wondering how I can make the text field so others can enter text and save it Acrobat 9. I seem to be missing something.
When I create an editable text field in my pdf using the form wizard, you can enter text in the field but there is no way for anyone to save the file in reader when they write into it - I get an error message along the lines of "you will not be able to save your text in this file please print it before closing".
I want the users to be able to save what they have written.
I created the file in indesign and opened it in Acrobat 9 pro using the form wizard.
Be very careful with this feature as there are limitations on it's use in the license. If you are having the form data submitted, then I do not think there is a problem. However, if you are having the form data submitted, then you need to read the appropriate section in the license carefully (basically a 500 use limit).
Ah I didn't realise this before . I created a fillable pdf so that my roleplaying group could fill in their character sheets (because their writing is dreadful lol), I used the Acrobat Trial, which has now ran out & now I'm stuck with forms they can't save. Doh!
Is there any alternative solution? As much as I enjoyed the trial & it's functions, I don't have any other forms to create & it would be a waste of a few hundred £'s . Would anyone be willing to make them savable for me?
