I have a PDF form with some signature fields. I am attempting to mark some of the fields in the document as read-only when the document is signed. This is what I did:
1. Modify the "Signed" properties of the signature field.
2. Choose "Mark as read-only" and "Just these fields" in the drop down list beside this option.
3. Click on the "Pick" button to select the fields to be marked read-only when the user signs this field.
In the "Field Selection" dialog that comes up, nothing is shown in the list.
Am I doing something wrong? Is there something I need to do to add fields to this list, or should it be populated automatically allowing me to choose what I want?
I noticed this feature is only available for Acrobat 6.0 and later. The compatibility level for the document I created is 1.6 (Acrobat 7 and later). It is created in Acrobat X.
Just figuring my way around these things. Did a google search for any solutions, but couldn't find anything on this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
It certainly sounds like you are on the right track.What version of Acrobat are you using, is it Pro or Standard, Mac or Win? I see where you mentioned the file was created in Acrobat X, but I'm not sure that the app that create the PDF file is the same version as the one you are using for editing.
Sorry for the late resposne. I was using Acrobat X Pro on a 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate PC. The same app was used for creating and editing. I gave up on marking the fields read-only.I have upgraded to Acrobat XI Pro and the problem still persists. When I click the "Pick" button, the list in the "Field Selection" dialog is still empty.
