I'm am guessing that you are collecting data via FormsCentral.
You can add
This mean that even if the print is cancel, the submission is still initiated.
This mean that if there is validation or submission problems the PDF will still be printed first.
You might want to add the
line only if the validation are successful.
Awesome! I will give it a try.... Thanks
Here is who you would do this :
1) Import your PDF in FormsCentral
2) Save the Submission Enabled Form from the Distribute Tab
3) Open the PDF in Acrobat XI
4) File > Save a Copy...
5) Open the copy in Acrobat XI
6) Tools > Forms > Edit
7) Find the Submit button on the form right click on it to show the properties dialog
8) Go to the Actions Tab
11) Close the dialog with "OK"
12) Close the property dialog with "Close"
13) Click on "Close For Editing" (top right corner in Acrobat XI)
14) File > Save as Other... > Reader Extended PDF > Enable More Tools (includes form fill-in & save)...
15) Test your form (make sure it submits to FormsCentral without errors)
Hope this helps
Thanks Gen.. for your detailed step.
When I get to Step 6, I get a message that says "You can not edit this file as a form."
I did save it as a Submiision Enable form as you instructed in Step 2. The Submit button does appear when I open the file in Acrobat XI, however I can not edit the form.
Any ideas, why I'm getting this message?
Make sure you "File > Save a Copy..." (not save as... or save)
Then save using a different name than the current opened form and open that copy. This removes the Reader Extension rights which will allow to modify the form. Step 14 will readd the rights.
This is similar to what I'm trying to do but I want to put a Print button on my PDF Form which has been created inside Formscentral. I can't quite work out how to do that from the instructions provided as I'm not sure where to put the command when I'm in Formscentral. Could you explain the steps to insert the command when doing it in formscentral (if it's possible to do it from in there).
It is not possible to do it from FormsCentral. You need Adobe Acrobat (which is not the free Adobe Reader) to perform the operations mentioned above to modify the PDF. Note that the instructions were for Acrobat XI but similar operations can be done in older versions of Acrobat.
Perfect! That did the trick. The component I didn't understand yet was the removal of the Reader Extension rights, but got it now. I have a Submit button which also Prints my form automatically. Thanks for your help Gen, you're awesome!
