This option is only available in the Pro version.
Thanks for the reply Bernd, so this means my customers will have to purchase a $300 copy of Acrobat Standard or $500 for the pro version just to print a form, that an expensive option.
To the best of my knowledge, Reader should be able to print the form. It can not save the form unless additional steps are taken. To be sure about the capabilities of Reader, you might want to ask in the Reader forum.
According to the Adobe site, the following can be done with Reader:
1. View, print, and search PDF files, including PDF Portfolios and PDF maps
2. Author, store, and share documents, and share your screen, using Acrobat.com services
3. Experience richer content and greater interactivity with native support for Adobe® Flash® technology
This list does not talk about forms unfortunately.
You can re-design your form. Every PDF document can have non-printable background.
Bernd, thanks for the reply in this forum. When I create a form, I create the form from my scanner and turn it into a pdf, then I add the ability to fill it. To have a non-printable background (the page in which I scanned), where exactly is this setting? Do I need to make my documents (the one I scanned) a .gif or .jpeg and add it as background then hide it or am I able to make the original document I scanned (and turned into a pdf) non-printable?
Thanks for your help.
Create a PDF document with empty pages. Use Document > Background > Add/Replace... to add your scanned PDF document as background. In the appearance options disable the entry 'Show when printing'. Then you add the form fields to your document.
Bernd, you are a lifesaver, I can't thank you enough for taking the time to explain this to me.
