I recently received an application for a job, and it is an adobe form with required fields and a submit button. I was able to fill out all fields except for the signature, which is a required field. I click on it but I can't type in it. The man who is hiring is not the one who made the form. He said I could submit to him without the signature, but the email submit option won't allow me to send the form because of the missing required field. It will not allow me to save so I can't send it as an email. Please help.
That's silly. It sounds like it's a digital signature field, but for it to work with Reader, the form has to be Reader-enabled. In addition to allowing digital signatures, it allows the form to be saved by Reader. Since you cannot save it, it sounds like the form is not Reader-enabled, so you can't sign it either. If you're desperate, you can download the evaluation version of Acrobat Pro, which will allow you to save it, as will certain non-Adobe PDF viewers.
