Uploading fillable PDF form to the web

Jan 20, 2011 12:42 PM

I have created a fillable PDF form in Acrobat 9, which opens fine as a fillable PDF from my desktop.  I also uploaded it to our website but when i open it up from the web; it is no longer fillable.  Can you tell me how to fix this?

Thanks

Melissa

    That's odd. Can you provide a link so we can take a look?

    That PDF is fillable for me using Acrobat9/Firefox (WinXP) and Reader10/Safari (Mac).

     

    What combination is the machine where it isn't fillable using?

    The file is fillable in my computer as well ( Windows XP, Acrobat 9 Pro Extended, Adobe Reader X on Firefox and Google Chrome).

     

    Try installing Adobe Reader X and then open PDF from the website.

    That really depends on how a user (client) machine is set up, as opposed to something you can do on the web server. For example, the user can configure Acrobat/Reader so that it does not open in their browser, but rather directly in Acrobat/Reader. Or they can set things up so that PDFs are always downloaded and not automatically opened in Acrobat/Reader. You could provide instructions for downloading the PDF on the page that has the link to your form.

    You can use the "Save a copy" icon on the top toolbar after opening the PDF. This will give the option to save the file to your local drives.
