I'm using Adobe Acrobat Professional ver 9 and have created an accessible course certificate form with a fillable field. The user brings up the certificate, types their name in the field, and prints the certificate. When they do this, the form gets updated with their name even if they didn't save it. So the next person that brings up the form sees the previous persons name.
Is there a way to have the user type their name in the field, print the certificate, and not have the name saved in the field? I'd like it if every time someone brings up the certificate that it's a fresh copy.
This form, a course completion certificate, is on an intranet and I'm not able to post a link. If a person types their name in the text form field and chooses "Save" the form is saved with their name. If the user chooses "Save As" it works as expected. The user can save a copy of the form somewhere else and the original is not changed.
Is there a way to "disable" Save so the original cannot be changed?
A web server will send a copy of the file to the client machine, so it's a separate file. Any changes the user makes cannot affect the file on the web server.
There are different types of file servers, but at its simplest it allows shared file access to other machines on the network. If it doesn't control how files are saved, anyone with access to a shared file will be able to overwrite it.
