    What do end-users need to be able to save changes to forms?

      Hi,

       

      Just wondering: I made a nice form in InDesign CS6. When I open it with

      Acrobat I'm able to fill in the form and save it. But I understand that

      this is not possible with Acrobat Reader. So I tried "enabling the PDF

      for commenting in Reader" in Acrobat. But when I do that, although I can

      add comments in Reader, it becomes impossible to fill in the form.

       

      Having said that, since I do not want to install Reader on my machine

      alongside Acrobat, instead I installed Reader on a Windows XP Virtual

      Machine -- though I wouldn't have thought that should make any

      difference. But it maybe it does.

       

      Anyway, is it in fact the case that the only way to save a filled-in PDF

      form is to buy the full Acrobat?

       

      Thanks,

      Ariel
