    remove saveas from signature

      is it possible to stop the saveas popup from appearing after a digital signature is added? (form created in Acrobat Pro)

          Do you want to overwrite the original PDF? Are you sure?

          If you have a signature field you can associate a JavaScript with this field which will specify the destination file name. The latter can be the same and in the same location as the original one. You may still get an alert "Do you want to overwrite the file". Or you can establish some rules for the naming/location of the signed PDFs and have the JavaScript to create such name and submit it as the signed PDF name (full filename path).

            thanks very much for your reply. I have to overwrite the form as only one can exist with that filename (which I have linked through another database structure to a GIS system). any advice on the scripting would be very welcome. thanks again

              If you Google "acrobat javascript reference", you'll get pointers to the Acrobat JavaScript documentation, which includes Reference, Guide, best practices, etc. The functionality you need was in Acrobat for a while, so even Acrobat 9 manuals are applicable.
