I created a scholarship application for High School Seniors, but most of them found the submit button didn't work for them, so they just saved and attached the fillable .pdf to an e-mail. So, now I have these .pdf files that because they were created in Forms Central, cannot be uploaded to Forms Central for data manipulation. Also, it seems I an unable to easily print these files with the filled sections visible. I also tried converting them to .docx and .xlsx, but the filled data didn't convert. I need to distribute these applications to my committee somehow for voting! If I can't print them, nor can I distribute them through Forms Central... what can I do???
This FAQ explains why the Submit button may not work.
They need to be filled out using Adobe Reader. The students filled them out with a PDF Reader that doesn't properly support PDF forms.
Do you have Adobe Acrobat? If you open those forms in Adobe Acrobat and do a save as it will fix the issue.
