Reader asks to save some documents

Aug 5, 2013 10:37 PM

Tags: #save_dialog #adobe_reader_xi

Sometimes (I think older pdf-documents) the reader 11 asks me to save the document even if I haven't done any changes.

How can I stop this?

    If they're forms, they may ask to save every time per the save protocols by the author of the form. If they're NOT forms, save them with a different name (add a dash between words) and it shouldn't prompt for a save again.

    There are security changes in XI that alter the metadata upon saving. Older versions (9 and below) don't have these changes.

    None that I know of. They're designed to "prevent security breaches from unauthorized sources" and written into the code of the app.

    That I couldn't do. I'm a freelance web designer, not an Adobe employee. I just volunteer here. The "prevent security breaches" came from a release note I read some time back. It's generic for "we fixed some things we missed the first time" as far as I know.

    Don't hold your breath that someone from Adobe will help.

     

    Perhaps you can share such a file (obviously, share the BEFORE file) on a public web site.
