I want to add a 'button' onto my form, labeling it ' Attach here'... For user who will fill in my pdf form (Acrobat X Pro), so they can 'attach' their document onto the PDF as well.
I went through the 'Actions' Tab and couldn't find one that would allow 'attaching' form.
Is adding a 'Attach' button possible within Acrobat Pro forms?
Yes. I will need the button to work with Reader as the form will be intended for end-users to attach something onto the form and, send both the attachment (from theircomputer) and the filled-in form to me (as the form creator).
Reader has certain limitations regarding the two types of file attachment methods that it allows. See this previous discussion for more information: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4248040?tstart=0
In short, unless you enable the document with LiveCycle Reader Extensions, you can't set up a button that does what you want. If you enable the document with Acrobat, a user will be able to attach a file as a comment. Since this a manual process, you will probably need to include instructions.
Thanks again for your response.
Is there a link you can offer which will show me how to use the Life Cycle Reader function you've mentioned?
I checked and found that i have Life Cycle Designer ES2.
LiveCycle Reader Extensions is an entirely different product than LiveCycle Designer. It is a server-based product and rather expensive. It's sole purpose is to add usage rights to PDFs so that Reader is able to do things it normally cannot with a dcument. Acrobat can add usage rights to documents too, but not as many as Reader Extensions can. The file attachment right is one of them.
